Hi, I have some 2 week old frizzle bantam cochins. I know 2 weeks is REALLY young to sex, but I thought it may be worth asking. Also, if you can't tell... When should I be able to tell? I have a silkie too but I know silkie chicks are almost impossible to sex. Thanks!

Much too young still. Some male Cochins start developing at 4 weeks. But a better estimate would be new full body pics at 7-8 weeks of age. Watch those combs for growth and color change. Silkie can be easy like Bantam Cochins if they are hatchery quality. Breeder quality can take ages. Watch the comb growth on your silkie also. If it stays flat until she’s old then a girl. If you get a wide puffed comb boy.
