    Looks like a cockerel to me.
     
  3. Cockerel, it's getting the male version of patridge coloring. A male sort of looks black and red, a female all brown

    X's 2 here, going to have a nice partridge roo... Already getting saddle and hackle feathers. Was it supposed to be a hen?

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. With the red, black, and green.

    They claim a 90% accuracy. We got 6 chicks and this seems to be our only roo. Sad though. It’s our only Cochin.

    Well, maybe look around on Craigslist, you might be able to find a nice pullet to go with... Maybe a Silver Laced and you can have some gold laced chicks!

    I’ve got a Silver Laced Wyandotte, BLR Wyandotte, two EE’s, and a Sapphire Gem at home with this Cochin.
