    This is Pippin, he hatched out under a broody along with 3 other chicks. I know he/she is a bantam and that he/she is a Cochin mix, but I don't know if he/she is a rooster or a hen? Any advice?

    Hard to say what she's mixed with but from this angle I'd say pullet.

    Do you have any pictures of the comb, or of the bird standing on its own?

    The lack of wattles in a bird that size I say Pullet!

    This is her when she was a little younger. Is this pic any better? Now I need to change her name to something else besides "Pippin"! Any ideas?

    Here is a head shot of her. Does that help any?

    I could be completely wrong, but it may possibly be a silver penciled cochin. I have never raised this color, so I am not positive.
