    So both Cochins are definately roos. If they are only 10 weeks their combs are way to big to be females. The other one looks like a pullet and it looks like a cuckoo d'anverse. I am not sure which country you are in, but that is what we would call it in the US, if you are from over seas. I don't know what you call them over there

    I agree cockerel and pullet and the pullet looks like a Cuckoo Maran to me but I am sure that I am probably wrong!
