    I'm not seein pointy feathers, but the pix are a bit blurry. About how old do you think she is??
    It looks like she might be close to laying age (4 months-ish) due to the red in the comb - but I'm not an expert on your breed. If she is about that age, then I'm pretty sure it's a she [​IMG]

    Maybe someone else can chime in.

    She looks more like my Cochin pullet than my Cochin Rooster. How old is she?

    My pair of Cochins are the same age, but the rooster matured way faster and now he is courting the ladies...mine are 5 months old.

    Your pics are a little blurry, so maybe some better pics would help. I'm not confident in saying either way cause I really can't tell much about them.
