    Definitely a rooster, pointy tail and hackle feathers. He's handsome!

    Correction. I just saw that he has a single comb, Brahmas have pea combs. I think he's a mixed breed rooster.

    He could be a cochin, but I am not certain what color he would be...?

    He may have some Cochin in him. That would account for the single comb, but he doesn't appear to have nearly enough feather mass for a pure breed Cochin. He could be a Cochin mixed breed though.
