    I'm hoping I have a girl because this bird is such a beauty and the foot feathering is amazing... but, I have a GL cochin that is a month older and her waddles and comb are nowhere near as red. The comb and waddles on this one got red pretty quickly... it has a peepy voice... it's in a pen with my silkies who mother "it" and 2 girls that are a month older... the 2 older girls and this one get along but I do notice the 3 of them are trying to position themselves as the top bird.

    Soooooo.... girl or boy?

    I'm just not sure but my guess is boy because of the large wattles and droopy tail. Since you want a girl hopefully I'm wrong lol

    Darn it!! Without a doubt a boy??? That means I have to rehome him. He is sooooo pretty and his foot feathers are gorgeous. Any doubt at all? Wondering if I should start looking now or hold off another month and hope you all turn out wrong...
