    I have a white frizzle cochin hen and had a frizzle cochin roo the year before(we got rid of him). The front one is a pullet, the back one may be a roo, but I'd lean more toward pullet. The Roos have more gray and browns in the coat and should have bigger combs and more pronounced wattles by 4 months. The only other thing on the one in the back is the larger tail feathers.... pullets.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the input. I was afraid the back frizzle is a roo, but I must also add he/she has feathered feet so it may be a cochin mix? Here is a better picture. [​IMG] They are from the same clutch so I am very confused! I am concerned about the redder comb. Hoping both are pullets! [​IMG]

    Hello!

    I do think you've got a hen and a roo. They are so cute! I just picked up two little bantam cochin frizzles and they are darling! I will have to post a pic of them........I'll try when I get home from work, this evening.

    If they are closer to 3 months I say a hen and roo is likely. However, if they are 4 months, there is a chance the roo may actually be a slightly more developed pullet. My cochin roo is WAY more developed at 4 months old, and he just started crowing. But definitely a chance you got 1 of each! Better then 2 roos! [​IMG]

    Those are both definite pullets, and it's a good thing too, because you can't mate a frizzle to a frizzle or you'll get some frazzles. Frazzles end up losing their feathers, having red irritated skin, and lead miserable lives. So don't get a frizzle roo if you plan on mating them, or you'll end up with frazzles. Congrats on both being pullets! [​IMG]
