    I'm thinking pullet, but I can't see the breast clearly. Partridge cockerels feather in with a black breast, pullets have a brown/reddish breast.

    My bantam Cochin boys always had a lot of color to the comb very early also.

    This is my first experience with bantams and with Cochins. He/she is so sweet! The only thing that makes me think rooster is the pink comb. No wattles yet. Always stands erect and alert like a roo. Hoping for a girl!

    Morty turned out to be a rooster! He went to live with 6 large fowl hens and 1 frizzled bantam Cochin hen. From what I hear he is a happy little guy!
