    I bought my chickens as straight run bantams and I think that Mabel is a Cochin. "She" is seven weeks old today and has started making a long cackling noise that I fear might be the beginning of a crow. My other chickens are silkies so I can't compare the redness of her comb and she does seem to be developing waddles. I was hoping someone with experience with this breed could tell me if my she is actually a he.




    Thanks in advance!! Also can anyone verify if she is indeed a Cochin?

    Mine are the same age and their combs are much smaller, maybe I have girls then!
