    Hi,

    I got some gold laced/buff/partridge mix standard Cochin chicks. The're five weeks now.
    One is obviously a cockerel, but I'm not sure about the more feathered one.
    Do you think it's a pullet? I suspect it's also a cockerel that just happens to be more feathered at this age.

    It's definitely possible but I'm not 100% positive. Can you post more pics in a couple of weeks?

    give it a bit more time, and better lighting so we can see the nuances of the colors on the wings, especially.

    I'm updating with some new pics from today. I'm almost sure it's a pullet now. She also acts like one now, always avoiding the aggressive cockerels. I'm having another purebreed black brahma pullet and EIGHT cockerels and the two pullets kinda self-isolated from the cockerels. All are about ten weeks now.
    Thanks for your input!
