    I didn't even notice gender, looks like a frazzle - two frizzles bred together - you end up with very brittle feathers that break off easily, and the bird can end up nearly bald.

    Looks like it is already bald on head.

    I know she's ugly (or he). was getting picked on big time by the others. mom is frizzle cochin bantam, dad is smooth feather cochin bantam. She's just an ugly frizzle. . but very sweet though.

    The comb looks too small for a cockerel, but you really can't tell by the saddle feathers...
