    My 2 Pekins (Cochins), both about 4 weeks old. My guess is rooster & pullet but as a total novice at guess the sex, I'd be very interested to hear what everyone else thinks [​IMG]

    I dont know this breed, but the first one looks to have a much bigger comb than the second. So my guess is roo, then a pullet in the second pic

    Not sure at the moment, we are allowed, there are no laws in place but we have neighbours. I guess its down to how loud he is. We'll see how it goes. I'm chuffed one is a pullet at least as we only have the two!
