    The old lady up the road thinks this is a cockerel, I hope so, but I think pullet. Whay say Ye?? I think it's @ 20 weeks old, and had a pink/reddish comb from 4 weeks old. $5 dollar bet on wheather it crows or lays!

    Roo. Might not have a lot of comb/ wattle, but that's just they way Cochins are. Also, a pink comb from 4 weeks is a sure sign.

    At 5 months old that is most def a hen, very pale small comb for it to be a roo at this stage.
