    Rooster, but it looks like a Cochin mix to me. My Cochin has a lot more feathering on legs and feet.

    He's a cochin mix,definitely a roo. His coloring looks partridge to me,but I can't really tell.

    Quote:X2 but add in hatchery quality. The partridge Cochins we got from hatcheries this year all had poor leg feathering for Cochins. It's not odd that he hasn't crowed. He's just a late bloomer. I have 6 roos right now (5 that range in age from 3-5 months) and only 3 crow right now (2 on a regular basis (one is my Sr roo who's over a year old) and the 3rd joins in occasionally).
