    I have two chicks that I don't know what sex they are.

    First one is Spring, she is a part Barred Rock/ EE (her mother) and Blue Cochin (her father). We think she is a pullet but you never know.

    The other one is Flora, she is a Buff Orpington (mom) and Blue Cochin (dad).
    We thought she was a pullet but know we have our doubts..she is the largest in our brooder and she is the youngest by a week.

    They are both featherfooted and truly amazing looking. They are both right at 4 weeks, Flora was 4 yesterday and Spring was 4 weeks this past thursday. They are really large and I realize that might be because dad, Vida Blue, the Giant Blue Cochin is huge.

    I would love to hear what y'all think, give me your input.

    Barred rock X = pullet 75% sure (may still be a cockeral but I am betting pullet right now)
    Flora = cockeral 100% sure
