    My babies are 3 weeks old. They are Cochin bantams. Two are frizzles and one is smooth ( I think).
    What is your best guess on sex??

    This chick has a lot of frizzles and is mostly black.

    This last picture is of my bantam Cochin but I don't think it's a frizzle

    Any clue on sexing them? They are 3 weeks old

    The roosters will often feathers slower in Cochin bantams, so my guess is the second ones a rooster, wish I could see the third.

    This is my last picture that didn't load. I don't think it's a frizzle. It only has a very few feathers that r sticking out. Do u think it's a boy or girl??

    All just guesses only by feathering. It looks rooster too. I would wait a few more weeks. The boys combs will turn pink around 6-10 weeks. The girls will stay orange until about 4-5 months.

    Do you think this one is the pullet? Even with the comb ? It isn't red/ orange like the others. [​IMG]
