    So I have 2 Frizzled Cochins that i got last spring. a cockrel and a pullet. Now that all my girls are at laying age, I took notice the my cochin female isn't very female-esc. When my 4 boys all "chat" she joins in by trying to stand as tall as she can gets pretty loud and grumbly. I also noticed last night that after one roo hoped off my Jersey Giant female (Demon) PC my little Cochin hoped right on top and tried to get some. Demon just layed there without a fuss. Could she be a he? she has no waddles under her black beard and her comb is small but really red like mt cockrel's comb. Do I have a confused bird and is there anything I can do? [​IMG]
