Quick question. Do partridge cochins have this type of comb?

    I don't know for sure, but I think Cochin's have single combs. At least both of mine do.

    No, cochins are supposed to have single combs. Look as if the one on the left has a rose comb.

    Ok, but will she/he get a lot bigger than the other 2? She/he seems to be the "mother hen" over the other 2. [​IMG]

    Can you tell if it's she or he? No obvious wattles yet, not really red comb, either, but I don't know about pea combs. Thanks everyone!!!! Steph

    You have a Dark Brahma Rooster. You can tell by the coloration, especially on the wings.
