    I have a partridge cochin who is about 5-6 weeks old. I noticed earlier this week wattles developing, a little more prominently on the left side. I just looked at her this evening and they're gone! What's that all about? Any ideas? [​IMG]

    Quote:Nope. I have four chickens all different breeds. The Cochin is my big beast. Yes it's very unusual. They started to come in one day, and disappeared a few days later. Maybe she had a little hormonal surge? But I'm relieved given the fact that I thought she was going to be a he at one point.
