    3 weeks old. It's turning out to be a frizzle! [​IMG] Still, it's a cute little thing. Boy or girl?

    Thanks for the input. Need more, LOL! I still dont know what sex this baby is, but going by the feathering, I'd say cockerel, if Cochin boys feather in slower than the girls, as in most breeds I'm familiar with.

    Well, my 3 week old bantam Cochin is not feathered out as much as this one of yours so I am as lost as the next person. But I would say roo if we go by my standard blue Cochins who at 3 weeks had lots more feathers and are pullets for sure.
    That's very helpful, huh?[​IMG]

    Hahaha! I'm trying to figure out if I can stand to have a frizzle in my crew, LOL. If not, he/she may go up for sale!

    Nadine, if it's a boy, I wont be at all shocked. [​IMG]
