    Hi these cochins are 4 1/2 weeks old. What do you think?

    Louieandthecrew I am actually a female!

    I'm thinking hens but my Red Cochin I didn't know he was a rooster until he was about 6 months old!

    They look like pullets but cochins can be slow to develop the rooster "look."

    [​IMG] Um, they look like 4 week old chicks. LOL. Too early to tell on those two. Some Cochins take awhile and so do some Orps. And they can fool you pretty good, too.

    too young to really tell, but I'm thinking it's... on the left a cock and the right a pullet

    I'd like to learn a little. What are y'all looking for? I know to look for a comb but beyond that... [​IMG]
