Is this a gold laced cochin?

I got her around 3 weeks ago when she was a few days old. Sign said dark brahma and there was another sign inbetween 2 bins that said assorted cochin. I'm pretty sure when I asked for 2 dark brahmas I got 1 and a cochin. Them being different colors didn't mean much to me since I've seen dark chicks in both colors. Hoping it's a female. She's a bit behind the other one in terms of shoulder and tail feathers but she is feathering more on her feet and hocks.
3 days old or so

Here's what I'm pretty sure is a brahma.

3 weeks is a little too early to tell. I can't tell with the Brahma but if I had to guess on the Cochin I would say male.
The Cochin looks like a Chocolate :)

All 3 of her pictures are with me forcing her to stay still so the stance is a little funky I think.
Sex is way too early. I was just wondering if it does look like a cochin and the possible color.
She's from privett more than likely.

Looks like you do indeed have a Gold Laced Cochin and a Dark Brahma. Slow feathering in Brahmas and Cochins typically indicates cockerels.

I had look back to see the gold lacing coming in.
I totally think the Cochin is a cockerel.

Brahmas from what I've read feather different colors depending on gender. If so that one should be a girl.
Sex isn't important right now. I know it's too young. I'll cross the gender road when I get to it. Just didn't know if I got lucky with a rare color or something since I'm unable to find many chick pictures of the gold laced variety.
Here's some pictures in natural light.

6 week update: The Brahma is definitely a female. She's all penciled with no white or pure black feathers anywhere. Zero comb atm and only a small part in the feathers on her head.

The cochin has almost as many feathers but her tail is a little shorter. No bald patches and only slight comb development. No wattles to speak of.
