    I guess Roo based on stance and short wing, but I'm a noob! Probably lots of Cochin owners to come in. Welcome to BYC!!!

    Is that one tall chicken?! [​IMG]

    I am on the fence. I don't know enough about the breed to give an answer. But, if I were to speculate, I'd say rooster.

    I think slow maturing cockerel. Still no tail feathers, and has that 2 toned look.
