Pretty young, but the comb that is getting color, along with wattles becoming apparent, make me wonder if male.

however,I’ve had a couple of breeds where the females get comb/wattle development earlier than other breeds, and show some color so I’m not sure on your chick- I’ve never had Cochins.

hopefully someone who raises/has raised Cochins will reply!

Thanks for the reply’s. I’ll post another picture in a couple weeks. I’m also thinking roo. As of right now I love him to much to not keep him. So hopefully he grows up to be an amazing roo!

My bet female. Comb is still pretty small,often Cockerels combs are higher at this point. Once it gets a bit older check the feathers on its back right before the tail. If the ends are pointed it's a male. Females feathers are rounded there. Looks like a buff cochin.
