    8 week old blue cochin. The feathering patterns look like a cockerel, but I'm really hoping its a pullet. Any ideas?

    I think that it's too young to be certain. I'm thinking pullet, as the comb and wattles aren't very large.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel based on stance and comb reddening. However, it is a little young to be sure.
