    The best way is to wait a few weeks and examine comb/wattle development, color, ect.. :) Takes patience, but it's worth it. :D

    Cute little one, Cochins are precious. :love

    It does look to be a Partridge Cochin. With the Partridge pattern is easier to sex when they are young, when the chest feathers come in. Pullets are light colored and patterned. And cockerels are solid black breasted.

    Please wait until six weeks, then post pics of its comb.
    Yes, Austrolorps can be sexed as chicks. Post pics of their combs at 7-8 weeks, because they are a little slower developing.m
