    I have a Birchen Cochin ______. Please if you can, give me your best guesses on what you think my little chick is. The person that hatched it, says its a hen because of it's pink comb, but I need to know for sure so I can try to sell it asap if it's a rooster. Thank you!

    Has anyone got an idea..guess as to what sex this cochin is? I know cochins have large combs..wattles? Two and a half months should start showing them, whether hen or roo, right?

    Cochins are the slowest maturing of all breeds, honestly I am suprised its comb is that big at 10 weeks
