    We are sooooo hoping that this is a little female! On friday she/he will be 15 weeks old, and is a frizzle cochin bantam. Please give me the bad news gently. She is so friendly and has really become part of the family. She/he face started turning red about 2.5 weeks ago if that helps to determine anything!

    She is a pretty little girl!

    This is my 12 week old bantam cochin boy! Big difference in the comb and waddles and my Bug is a few weeks younger than your girl.

    Bug says "Shes a cutie!" He likes frizzled girls.

    Looks like a girl. Lots of red but I don't see any waddles yet.
