    2 boys and a girl [​IMG] The first I'm going with black dutch. 2nd you can tell it's a blue cochin if it has blue or blue and white feathers coming in. If the feathers are mostly white it's a splash. If they are all blue it could be a lavendar aka self blue. The last looks like it might be a spangled OEGB hen.

    Quote:Way too young to tell. Boys will have start dark pink/reddened combs and wattles anywhere from now-5 weeks. Girls combs stay pink for a much longer period of time.

    My cochin bantam's comb is much more red then the others. If I have more than one roo, do I have to get rid of it? I can't keep more than one roo together?

    I see people with several roe's together. I would just make sure one is not getting beat up by another. I'm not keeping any roosters, so I dont know for sure.

    Yes the first two are definately boys. The last one I guess could turn into one later on but for now I say pullet.
