    I think it's a girl but the red around the eyes has me thinking boy. What do you think? It's about 7-8 weeks old.

    It's hard to tell. Maybe an early maturing pullet or a slow maturing cockerel. [​IMG] It would be easier to tell in a week or two.

    I'd say boy - I have a bantam frizzle cochin pair (14 weeks old) and the hen has zero red in her face, no comb, while the cockerel has had a red face and small red comb for weeks now.

    Yours is gorgeous! [​IMG]

    Hi. I have a tiny bantam Frizzle Cochin too. I have been debating about "her" for weeks. I had 2 others that were obvious Roos and a regular feathered bantam Cochin, also a roo. By the age of your pullet my guys had huge combs and wattles and were very red. In fact two had crowed by 10 weeks or so. This last one I kept but also had my fingers crossed. I picked her up and really looked at her neck feathers and back feathers. They were rounded but it was always upright and chest bumping.
    Today, "SHE" laid her first egg!

    I say pullet based on my experience.

    I say pullet. My Roos were easy to tell by 4 to 5 weeks. My pullets got red in their face around 8 to 10 weeks. It could always be a slow maturing roo but I'd bet it's a girl.

    Ok looking back at pictures I had a white frizzled hen that had a very red face. This is her (it was winter and she got muddy!) She mothered many babies. Sweet hen until her sons killed her last year.:
    Oh and this is my Pencil Rock that was her BFF. lol
