    Cochins are one of those that can go from hen to roo overnight [​IMG]
    I have found that with mine, color is more indicative of gender than size of comb at this age.

    I am putting my guess in that the black one is going to be roo. [​IMG]

    I think the black one is a boy. Just looks that way, his comb is much redder and seems bigger.

    I think the white is a girl. The black one def looks more 'roo'ish'

    I think they are both girls. My bantam cochins are 7 weeks old, and the roos already have much larger combs, and redder. But that's my batch of them!
