    Cockerels or pullets? I ordered all pullets but well nothing is perfect. About 6 weeks old. I'm pretty sure the wyandotte is a pullet she has one spike starting to come in on her comb but it is still nice and orange. The cochin has the only set of pink/red comb and waddles out of everyone but idk if that is a breed characteristic with the whites. Most pics I come across online show redder combs then most.

    Hi there. :frow

    Wattles on the white one and stated age... say cockerel. I would have a hard time convincing myself otherwise. :)

    Feather pattern on the Wyandotte says cockerel. But the comb isn't screaming it and I can't make out wattles. Could just be poor pattern quality. :pop

    :fl

    I still love your Cochin and do wish I wouldn’t have cut that from order.
    Fingers crossed for your GLW! Mine looks exactly like yours and is 4 weeks. Supposed to be a pullet also:fl:fl:fl.

    after we finished talking the other day about the my 2 cochins being opposite in personality it started to click... crap.. dude looks like a lady. I wish you were closer you could take him! No boys allowed in my town.
    I don't know about the GLW I have been googling and comparing and it may need to be a couple more weeks unless someone can give me a confident response. All 6 have waddles this pic shows them a bit better. They would rather eat my phone then get their pictures taken.

    I’m technically allowed roosters, but I don’t think our neighbors would like us very much anymore . He does look a little pink. Maybe it’s the white making it look worse. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

    Idk, the GLW looks like a cockerel to me. The comb looks really big, along with the poor lacing on the wings. That all says cockerel.

    Now, the cochin... the face is aweful red for a pullet, but! a cochin cockerel of that age usually has a much larger comb. I'm on the fence here.
