    It might be that you are right on the brahma thing. Ill take a clean pic of the face in the morning and well see for sure.

    it looks to have a straight comb, and I'm guessing female but it looks younger than 6 months to me, from the size of the comb.

    It was born in March they said but it could be younger. The face is pretty red but the wattles are small and I dont see any spurs. Hard to tell about saddle feathers. Do brahmas or cochins have them?

    Both have saddle feathers, most roosters do unless the are hen-feathered.

    I'm leaning towards a rooster, it looks like it's getting some pointed saddle feathers.

    On further inspection think I do see saddle feathers but it's hard to know unless we have more pictures.
