    What do you guys think? These are two standard black cochin "girls' who were born 5/5/08, I should know by now if one is a rooster right?

    I was thinking the one on the right might be a boy......

    Thank you! They were born 5/5 I would imagine they would show something by now. The waddle on the one was just larger than te other, I had thought maybe it was a roo....


    I LOVE their adorable fluffy butts, I'd love to get more, maybe next summer...
