    They are about 2 mos old.

    I know this one is an easter egger and I think its a pullet.

    I think all of these are cochins. I think all are pullets except for the black. Opinions?

    Buff? Pullet?

    Blue or gray? All pullets? Both are pretty much the same color but one is darker.

    Im not sure what this one is. I got it from TSC. I'm leaning towards a black cochin and rooster?

    Right now, only the one Cochin looks like a roo to me. But, I believe the bird in the first picture might be a dark Cornish. Can you get a good side on pic of the body with it standing?

    Quote:I would also guess that the blue Cochin with the red leakage on the chest is a cross. The leg feathering is a bit sparse for a Cochin and looks to be nonexistent on the middle toe.

    I will take some more pics in a bit. The first one came from a group of Easter Eggers. Its a pretty bird. The color is really pretty. I've got 2 more like it that are already outside.
