I finally got a Cochin! It's been awhile since I've had chickens so I'm really really hoping it's a pullet because I can't have a rooster. What do you guys think?

I am by no means an expert and there are much better qualified folks on here but from what I can see of the comb, it looks like you have a good chance at that being a pullet. ☺ Can you cet a clear head photo?

I'm assuming around 5-6 weeks she is still getting her plumage, her siblings had their Combs but she is barely getting her comb and waddle.

I'm no expert either, but so far it looks like a pullet to me. I had some chicks hatch out of an incubator a couple of months ago. Out of the 3, I could tell from day 1 that the 1 was a Roo, by the bigger comb and thicker legs. That's not always the way, but it is a good indicator. Best of luck!

Looks like a pullet but I know these little turds can surprise us. I have three that have the same comb and am deeeeeesperately hoping they STAY that way. The fourth cochin turned bright red and grew overnight about a week or so ago.
