    I got this adorable little chicken at the feed store today. Hoping it's a half cochin hen. It's very sweet and likes being held. Only my silkie roo doesn't like it. Could be a roo or could be that he's being protective of his hens. It doesn't have pointy hackle feathers but it does that big comb and wattle. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I'm assuming it's a grown up because of the wattles. Is that what's it called? It's a heavy bird too.

    I believe it's a hen. Silver Wyandotte/Cochin mix maybe?
