    Hello! I have 6 chickens and this morning some started crowing! I have been mysteriously been suspecting my frizzle is a roo for awhile now bc they puff up their chest and charge my hens.. they are 7-8 weeks old right now. I have noticed my frizzle has a bright red comb compared to my others too... just needed your input. im also curious about my silver lace wyandotte as well bc it is slightly brighter than my other girls combs...here are some photos of the two..
    here is my black frizzle comb

    Your bantam cochin is a boy. My 10 week old girls still have barely any comb and no wattles. Can't help you with your wyandotte though.

    I think the Wyandotte and the Cochin are both cockerels.

    Both are cockerels, according to comb development at that age. Also, the coloring coming out on the Wyandotte is shouting "rooster!". Lol.
