    I think I see the dark saddle feathers coming in but it could just be my eyes. :p. My Cochin hens were smoother in coloring and the combs smaller at 5 months. But some ladies have bigger combs than others.

    Male. You can see male feathering in the tail and the wattle growth says male. Sorry.
