    I tried posting this on a frizzle thread with no responses, so I'm going to give this thread a try.

    I asked for guesses on the gender of my Cochin frizzle when it was 8 weeks old. Now 10 weeks later I'm still unsure. I thought for sure this cutie was a rooster. It's comb was bigger then my other chickens and red at 10 weeks. But it's comb hasn't gotten any bigger since then and no attempts at crowing. So, can anyone tell me the gender of this 18 week old sweetie? Also, my other pullets have started picking on my frizzle and it sleeps alone at night. It's my only bantam. Should I be worried about the cold? I live in Utah

    I'm leaning towards pullet, but frizzles can be hard to sex.

    My white frizzles were sort of easier because there were two and one developed more of a comb and waddle and the other's stayed pale. The frizzle in my picture is a roo.

    Thanks everyone! I will be looking forward to those little eggs! Any thoughts on her sleeping alone and getting picked on by the other chickens? I'm not worried right now as the temps have been above 30. Although, it usually drops into the teens in January and February and occasionally single digits. That is what I'm most worried about!
