    They look blue to me, too. I haven't had Cochins before though, so I can't be sure on the color...I will, however, guess that they are both hens.

    Those are blue, and beautiful ones at that! Splash has more white/grey mixed in. They both look like pullets to me...you are lucky, out of the 6 that I ordered only one had that pretty of blue coloring. The rest were light grey and splash.
