    Any thoughts if it is definitely a hen? Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    I'd say she's exactly what she's supposed to be, a little Cochin hen.

    Even with little wattles? I truly hope so. My rooster numbers keep going up. Can I show you a sizzle also and see if you know if this one is male or female?

    This one has pretty big comb and wattles. Both black so hard to see. I can try for better picture tomorrow.

    Yeah, she does have a bit of a wattle but that body is 100% female.

    The Frizzle (which I would say is not a Sizzle but a Frizzle Polish or possibly Frizzle Polish Bantam, possibly also a cross of FP/FPB) is tricky. I'd lean towards cockerel but really I can't say for sure.

    The other one looks like some type of mixed bantam, and is most certainly a cockerel.

    My splash cochin bantam always had a more prominent, pinker comb and I was so sure she was a he. She's always been utterly fearless and super friendly which added to my worry! She started sprouting wattles earlier than my other girls which made me worry all over again. Is it something about the splash colour!?
