Is this a rooster or hen?
Looks like a Cockerel.Age?
About 16 weeks. I am new. This is my first flock and I thought I heard some noise this morning and this chicken has been behaving a bit more aggressive.
Rooster for sure
Are you seeing any shiny,silvery feathers?By now he should have some saddle feathers,not seeing any that's the only thing that makes him 'Some" pullet like.
i dont think it looks like there are any saddle feathers. The chicken just seems to have gotten a bit more aggressive to my other girls. It always pecks them in the neck and pulls feathers out of them.
He's a rooster, but I don't think cochins have saddle feathers until they're older. I have a 2 month old cochin roo who has no saddle feathers at all.
Nothing silvery anyway. I've always looked to see if the feathers looked round at the ends but I just thought maybe when her being a different breed her feathers might be more straight.
Saddle feathers start coming in on cockerels around 3 months.Your rooster could be a late bloomer and feather late.Most cockerels do have saddle feathers by 16 weeks,maybe not a lot but enough to say boy or girl.
I have raised many roos,Cochin bantam being one of them.
