    I ordered straight run chochins.... 6 golden laced banties and 4 silver laced standards. How can I tell males from females?

    The Americanas are easy to tell, cause the males have a wild furry look about their face, and the females don't.

    Have no idea on how to tell the cochins though, any suggestions?

    Well... you'll probably have to wait another 3 weeks or more, just like most other breeds. Some can be slow to mature too.
