Here is the head shot. I'm thinking he's a rooster. .

It's about 8 weeks I'd say

The comb is not a very reliable as to sex a bird. Especially cochins because you can have late bloomers and early growers.

I'll need a full body shot. Being 8 weeks, its very likely it's a boy because girls don't redeem until they start to lay.
Are there other gray or silvery parts on the bird? A birchen hen will only have silver hackles and the rest is solid black.

I really want aWhite  Sebastopol that is young and nearby! Our male died two days after we bought him. I would really want a female though because the Sebbie was to be a companion for my duck, and now we think it's a drake.

Oh! It's silver laced. It looks like a boy. Especially being two months.

Yes sorry. I should have mentioned SL Cochin stood for silver laced.

Given the size and redness of its comb and wattles at 8 weeks, you have a cockerel.
