    I concur - roo.

    I hatched out a lovely bunch of cochin eggs from eBay, and got four roos and one hen! This guy reminds me of my fellas. My girl has hardly any comb at three months.

    The comb has really yellow tips. I say pullet. Tough one!

    Thanks for your replies. The comb is larger so I was thinking roo, but its very pale, not red, so maybe a hen?
