I can't stress this enough, they need to be mostly feathered in, and the photos need to be taken in natural lighting.

We have four chickens and I've been a little worried that the Barred Cochin or this Red might be roosters. They've never tried to cock-a-doodle-do and seem to act like hens, but this is my first go around with chickens and I just want to know what I'm looking for. The Red is about 6 months and the Cochin is about 5. We JUST started getting eggs this week, so SOMEONES a lady haha

Your Cochin is definitely a cockerel. The light barring and long, thin saddle feathers are male specific.

Thaaaaats what I was thinking. She (now he haha) also acts a bit different, just more sketched out all of the time. Luckily Timber isn't a gender specific name 😉 Do you know at what age should I expect him to get loud?

It really all depends on him. Some boys start crowing as early as a few weeks old. Others don't start crowing till they are over 8 or 9 months old. Both are completely normal.

Thank you for all of your help!
