    I was told this was a bantam cochin hen, starting to wonder about both of those. She/he is about 6 months old. No crowing yet, but no eggs either. Hen or roo? Cochin or something else?

    For comparison those are polish bantams she is next to.

    Also, huge feet with extra fused toes.

    I am pretty sure I see saddle feathers coming in along the back, so I would vote roo. Does look like a cochin mix.

    I see saddle feathers so he is a rooster, he also looks like a Buff Cochin mix.

    He's a Buff Cochin mix, I think. Rooster for sure, as I see pointy saddle feathers, and the comb is rather red.

    Rooster. With that pointy tail, I don't think he has cochin in him, or not for a generation or two anyway.
