Hi! Total newb here, but have looked on this site numerous times for chicken expertise.
Anywho, my question is this, does anyone know if:

1. This breed of chicken
2. Whether it's a roo or a hen?

I'm thinking that it's a Cochin and his feathering is different from my buff orpingtons and white buffs. So I'm guessing it's a roo? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hi :welcome

Glad you could join us here! I'm afraid I can't see your pic very well due to the shadow. If you could get a pic in the light please do pop by the what breed gender section ~
I'm sure members there will be able to help you out.

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow

Do post her in the link given.

My guess is ... a cockerel. I see red coming in the shoulders, and also see some saddle feathers.

Also, on breed..hmmm, not sure, could be a mix. Big chicken, does not look pure Brahma or Cochin to me, but, it is still young. If I were to guess one of those breeds, I would go with LF cochin, because of that pretty round tail coming in. :)
