    100% rooster. I'm not familiar with the breed, but he also doesn't look Frizzle to me????

    The Easter Egger (?) behind him is a roo too (the one grooming his chest feathers in pic 3).

    The Red Sexlink pullet is very pretty BTW, I love the contrast of her white hackle feathers against the dark red! :)

    You have a cockerel. But, he's not a Frizzle. He looks like a normal Red Cochin.

    Definitely a rooster. However, he isn't a frizzle.

    Agreed. He's a Red Cochin cockerel, but most definitely NOT a frizzle.

    Yup, rooster. And when you order "frizzles," you get a certain percentage frizzled, some just plain smooth, and generally some silkie feathered. You can generally tell within a few days of hatch if the little wing feathers are curling, but if they ship day of hatch, you could get any of those. My guess is you just got a smooth feathered cochin from the "frizzle" breeding pen.

    I was going to say all this, including the part about the red pullet! She is so beautiful!
