    That's a pretty pink comb and a good set of wattles- I'm leaning rooster. How old is the bird, though?

    I'd say it's pretty certainly a boy, then. Hens don't typically get that pink/red until they are about to lay, and he's too young.

    He's a cute little thing- I've always had a soft spot for frizzle cochins. [​IMG]

    I was afraid of that. But yes he is a cutie!
