    Here are some pics of my sweet little 5 week old Mille Fleur Cochin Bantam Chicks. I think I have 1 Roo (the lighter one on the left) and 1 Pullet (the darker one on the right)? Fingers crossed! I look forward to hearing from the pro's out there! Sorry they are so fuzzy... it's really hard to get these guys to stay still! [​IMG]

    Those look like Mottled Cochins, not Mille Fleur.

    The one on the left looks like a cockerel, the one on the right (darker) looks like a pullet.

    Could be a pullet...watch for wattles...they start coming out and to redden...anytime soon...then I'd say cockeral....they will change so much as they grow..its amazing!!!

    I hope I'm wrong, but it looks more like a little roo to me. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
