    I bought these both as hens. He did say they weren't the same ago, but I would love some opinions!

    a BEAUTIFUL pair! First is male second is female:) are you allowed to have roos? If so I highly reccomend keeping him, as cochin roos are non-agressive, sweet with the ladies, and absolutely georgeous! I have one and I love him to death!

    there are only a few breeds where the roosters are "hen feathered", sebrights being the only common one i can think of. The pointed feathers start coming in around 4 months.
