    About 2.5 to 3 month old Barred cochin sold as a Pullet, Im worried though. It's comb isnt that pronounced but it's wattles are hanging and pretty red. It also postures against my known Cochin Bantam Roo's. What do you all think?!

    That's a boy. The coloration is male as well as the other items you listed.
