    I'm struggling to determine if my black Cochin is a roo or a hen. I unfortunately live somewhere I cannot have a rooster and I'm worried this chicky might be a roo. :(

    This is mine at about age 9 weeks or so and has turned out to be a roo.

    Is this a banty or full size cochin? Banties develop faster. Otherwise it looks like a cockerel to me.
