    Sorry. They were hatched October 10th. I think rooster too, but these Cochin mixes are really hard to tell.

    It could be a roo, but the comb is pretty small, but it's probably a roo

    It's a cockerel, but I'm not seeing the cochin. The legs look clean, not feathered? Feathered legs are dominant, so if it has a cochin parent it should have feathers. Also that pea looking comb doesn't look crossed with a straight that recently.

    The mom is Cochin. The sire was a pea combed all white Easter egger. She has feathered legs. We hatched 4 from that combo. 2 have feathered legs, 2 don't.
