    I got these from the local feed store along with 15 other chicks. These 2 were labeled as bantam hens but that is all that I know.

    Well the first looks like a roo-they may both be cochins.

    The first one might be a Langshan or Cochin (has sparser leg feathering than I'm used to seeing with Cochins) and looks like a cockerel.

    The second one looks like a Buff Cochin and I don't rightly know about the sex.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    The first looks like a blue cochin roo and the second is a buff cochin pullet.

    Thanks for your replies. Looks like I have some research on Cochins and see what they are. These are my first ones so I want to make sure they are happy.

    They look just like the bantam Cochins I got at my feedstore last year. They sure are fun. My one rooster is the boss over a big Buff Orp. roo. It's so funny.

    The first is a black cochin - not a blue, not a langshan.

    Im guessing the second one is a buff cochin.



    I have absolutely no clue about the sex. ^_^
