I picked up 2 straight run Cochins. What kind of Cochin are these? (not the yellows)

Also, any tips on sexing these?

Hi there, hope you are enjoying BYC! :frow

Looks like maybe Silver Laced.

Can't be sexed accurately right now. But as they age the lacing is *usually* clear on the wings of females while males can get more blotchy.

Red wattles will become obvious sooner on a male... which just by how the second 1 is holding it's tail... I would say cockerel. But they don't look any older than a weeks or so.

My second guess would be giant mottled... but look more like they will be laced than mottled.

Cute babies! :love

They look like my Cochins. I had both standard and bantam and all but one turned out to be silver laced. I sold the big girls to a friend, but kept the littles. I love bantam Cochins.
