    These are two Bantum Cochins, one frizzle, one not. What genders are they?? They are about 8.5 weeks old.

    I will tentatively say that you have a pair.

    my guess: either 2 roos, or one roo and one hen. I'm not an expert though...

    If the frizzle is a rooster, when should it begin "cock-a-doodle-doing" ?

    At 8.5 weeks they are probably both boys. Cochin pullets normally don't develope a comb or wattles that quickly. The frizzle is definitely a boy.
