    They look too young to be sure, but I would say #1 and #2 are cockerels and #3 is a pullet.

    EDIT: And I didn't notice you were calling the third bird a Cochin upon my earlier post. @Junebuggena is correct, that is a Silkie mix.

    All look like cockerels to me, and that last one is not a Gold Laced Cochin. It's a Silkie mix. Cochins have yellow skin and single combs, plus it's penciled not laced.

    How old are this chicks? Where did you get them from? The Silkie mix and the Silkie Frizzle combs are single and big, not what a Silkie's comb look like. The Cochin's comb looks like a Silkie's. Maybe I'm wrong, come people peep in....

    Didn't see the replies that came in while I was typing but I agree with QueenMisha, the first 2 Cockerels and the last Pullet. Also agree with junebuggena the last looks more Silkie than the others.

    Thanks for the feedback! The lady I bought them from said chick #3 was a GLC but that she wasn't 100%. This is my first time owning chicks so I had no idea!

    Thanks everyone! I bought these from a local breeder in my area. She has multiple roosters and hens so they are barnyard mixes. My captions are what she told me she believed they are. They are around 5-6 weeks old but the white silkie is sooooo much smaller than the others, almost like a runt.

    Did she have Bantams? Could be one.

    I'm pretty sure she had bantams so that may be it.
