    Hello all I picked up this frizzle at a local farm store a month ago so it should only be about 4-5 weeks old. Can anyone help me find out if it is a roo or pullet?[​IMG]

    Are you sure its a frizzle? None of its feathers are upturned??? And if it is only that young i would be leaning towards cockerel.

    I think it is a bantam Cochin cockerel.

    Looks like a bantam cochin cockerel. Possibly 1 of his parents was a frizzle. I've heard some people say that makes the babies frizzles but if he carried the frizzle gene his feathers would frizzle.
