    Can anyone help identify if my Cochin is really a rooster?

    she / he started crowing for about 20 minutes this morning.

    That's a rooster, but I think it's a Buff Brahma, not a cochin.

    Thanks for your help .

    Dang,

    That's what we thought. We live in the City and unfortunately can not have Roosters.

    Sorry, but I'm afraid I have to agree with donrae on both counts.

    Thanks!

    What about this one? We think it's a Black Sex Link Hen, but want to make sure.
