    Looks like a hen to me, going by the size of my little mottled cochin babies at the 2 month mark the roosters comb and waddles would be much bigger.

    Some pictures of the saddle feathers might help. It looks kind of rooish, but its comb isn't very big..........

    At 10 weeks you can't rely on saddle feathers. At that age, the comb and wattles on your little one say roo.
