    These are two cochin bantams (partridge and black). The partridge is around 7 weeks old and the black is around 5 weeks I believe.

    The partridge looks large. Could be a roo. Too early to tell for the black.

    I can't tell if the saddle feathers are pointed or not, it might be the way the detail of the feather appears. but in my not-at-all-an-expert opinion...

    i'd guess hen on the partrige and roo on the black. (hey...i have a 50/50 chance each!!) [​IMG]

    Cockerel for the partridge...but I'm debating on the black. Can you get a better angle of it with its head up? I'm leaning towards pullet.

    From the 1st pic. It looks like a hen, but the second picture makes it look more like a rooster. The 2nd black 1 looks like a hen.

    Can someone explain what is the dead giveaway on the Partridge? I will have to replace her if she is a HE!!! I am not allowed to have roosters in my neighborhood. [​IMG]
