    This is the first Cochin I've ever owned. It was sent as the extra chick with my spring order. I was convinced by behavior that it was a cockerel but now I'm not so sure. To be honest I'm terrible at sexing but usually I can tell by now (10 weeks). Thanks for the help.

    I figured as much. At one time he would challenge my White Wyandotte rooster but lately has been very docile. I guess he has found his place in the pecking order. If he stays that way he can be a lawn ornament.
