    I'm 90% sure these are males. I've not seen them crowing. About 8 weeks old, hatched July 15th. Any thoughts much appreciated. Thank you :D

    All that comb this young, I gotta say males.

    If you want to box up one of those pretty buff Cochins and send her to me, I'd sure take her! Those are cute little things.

    Kim, they are so stinkin' cute. If donrae gets one of the buff cochin girls, I'll take the other. Agree the Wyandotte boys are BOYS

    Thank you all, as I suspected with them :( Never mind, I might grow them on for the pot as they should be a bit more meaty than the polish!

    Rachel & Nancy if I could box them up and ship them over I certainly would but it's just a tad too far :hit

    My Wyandotte mixes were meatier than my other birds, especially the legs and thighs.
