    My 1st order of chicks arrived in May and the free mystery chick they included became my large fluffball Nugget. I default to calling Nugget a he but he hasnt crowed yet nor has he layed an egg so I dont know for positive yet. I am planning on an order for chicks in the early spring (March) and if he is a boy would like to get him a lady or four so each of my Roos has a few ladies of his breed to potentially have babies with.

    Can someone tell me with definite certainty what this bird is?
    Breed and Gender.

  2. Partridge Cochin (full sized) rooster. Beautiful boy, bit scruffy though.
    Good luck! Our Cochin was a great rooster

    x2 if you have other roosters, he probably hasn't crowed because he is not the dominate rooster, give him time he'll crow.

    Thanks everyone, now I know what ladies to buy him

    @CochinBrahmaLover he is scruffy because he is one of now 5 boys and not enough girls. The dominant male picks on him and my polish quite often, not anything major, but he is the lowest on the pecking order from what I have observed.

    @aoxa Thanks, he is only 5 months now so knowing he is a later bloomer is a great comfort, my polish was the first to crow at 6 weeks then didnt crow again until recently.
