    Pattern isn't text book, but suggest that you have a male.

    I'd say that is a male as well. From my experience with birchen- the females usually have the white around their neck, and the males get color on their back too. I've only had a few- but that was how they feathered out.

    ETA- now that I look at her again- he/she almost looks like a cross between birchen and silver penciled.

    Looks like a hen to me. Most bantam Cochin roos get a larger, red comb real early. And, they start to crow very early as well.
