    1 of my broodys hatched this out about 7 weeks ago. its egg was from 1 of my barred rocks and the father is a frizzle cochin. when it 1st hatched it had a pronounced spot on top of the head, it has since gone away. trying to figure if its a pullet or roo i'm leaning more toward roo but its still a darker color for a barred rock, but the cochin father is also all black, also tough to tell by the leg color as this little one has feathered feet.

    I'm gonna guess it's a roo...but it's kinda hard to tell from the pics. [​IMG]

    You probably got yourself a little sex-link roo. Hence the white spot and the barring.
    Does he have "boots"? All of my cochin crosses end up booted.
