    I got three chicks out of a feed store "straight run bantams" bin. Two are obviously Cochin, and cockerels. But this one??

    He/She is not showing any dominant or male behaviors, and not crowing or laying yet. There is a glint of shimmery green in the tail, but I don't know if that means anything or not? So...male or female?

    And what breed? Feathery feet and bantam size...

    Thanks!

    Brahma cocks have been the sweetest cockerels for me.
