    I'm holding out hope that I at least got one maybe two pullets in my straight run cochins from Cackle. The first pictures I uploaded were at 4 1/2 weeks old. I've now added 7 week pictures above the older ones.

    1 - Large Buff

    2 - Small Buff

    4 - Silver-laced -- first to feather in of all of them.

    6 - Splash/blue2 -- my buddy! I really want this one to be a pullet.

    Thanks y'all. I'm going to wait it out. I got so many Cochins just in case I got a lot of roos, so it's okay if I've got some! I will still try to keep some of the nice ones. My current Welsummer rooster is headed for the pot -- he keeps flogging me!

    Yeah....2 looks like the only pullet to me. At 7 weeks my cochin pullets do not have any comb or wattles except for their little yellow ridges. Maaaaaybe 6...but I do see wattles and a comb there [​IMG]

    Number 2 is definitely a pullet she looks very lady like and possibly number 6 is a pullet too . All the rest look like the may be roos , i have orpingtons which look similar and the boys had bright red combs and wattles by 6 weeks and at 12 weeks the hens still have tiny pale combs and wattles. Number 4 looks like he/she will turn out pretty [​IMG]
