    Our chicks are all seven weeks old now. We have 3 buff cochins and 1 australop.

    They all look like pullets for now except for the Australorp the comb is a dead giveaway for him.

    Vote pullet on the first one, the blue is a rooster. The last two are a little iffy would say possible roo right now because of the slower feathering and combs, so vote more pics in a couple of weeks on them..

    The last 2 could be roosters as well the comb is a bit pink for a pullet but in a few weeks you should be able to tell.

    Blue one is a rooster. Middle buff one possibly a rooster but I think your cochins might be all pullets

    So far, you seem to have one cockerel and three pullets.

    The large cochin's comb has now started to go pink/red. At what age do cochin hens normally develop combs?
