    this is when i first got them, they were a week old, some only a couple of days old. i think the lighter ones were younger...Peeps? True?

    [​IMG]
    they're starting to change color, i think this one may become a molted (sp?)
    it's hard to see, but there's white patches on him/her...
    [​IMG]
    this one we weren't sure if it was going to stay blue... anyone? see anything..
    [​IMG]
    Those darker ones seem to be showing lil combs...roo? And look how much darker that blueish one got (1st pic, left) wow...I think that's him/her in the second pic...

    Darling! I have three baby cochins and none of mine are showing any sort of comb yet. They are about three to four weeks old now. Maybe I will get lucky and have all girls [​IMG] I think I have two blacks and a blue. Looks like you have two blacks and two blues.

    The nice thing with Cochins is that you can usually sex them fairly early.I always look where the wattles will be and my last boys were fairly red at 2 weeks and comb turning pinky red.

    Well, i only hope there's one Roo, not 2...but you never know... Can you see the lil yellow combs already, on the darker ones?

    Did yours change so fast in appearence? I can't believe the transformation already....
