    After going back and forth on "what is it" not only breed wise but also gender with many chicken lovers and I think I might have it!

    I was torn between BR/cochin/EE and barred cochin/EE. Beautifully feathered legs, a beard and muffs and barred obviously. I noticed there are these little "spikey" feathers up by the comb and after asking around and looking on line I see that BRs roos have those same feathers. So I do believe my Quinn is a Barred rock/cochin/EE mix cockerel [​IMG] (even though I can't help but still question the gender since his waddles are small but I am hoping ROO).

    Here he is at 9 weeks old.

    10 weeks old...his posture screams all Roo to me, I hope I am right

    11 weeks old

    Ugh, I tried three times and for some reason it keeps turning this picture. This one is 11 weeks also, you can really see his beard and muffs in this one.

    [​IMG]Yay, well this makes me happy. Every time I refer to him as a HE people keep saying "are you sure?" so I keep questioning what I see lol.

    Thank you Wyandottes7. He has been fun to watch develop. I think he is rather pretty too. [​IMG]
