    Hello All!!!

    I have a 4 month old Buff Cochin that has been showing odd behavior such as jumping on top of one of my hens, shaking and pecking her on the head - the hen doesn't seem to mind. Any ideas as to what it means? Thank you.

    It may mean that your Buff Cochin is a cockerel. Can you post a picture of the bird?

    Can you post a profile shot of the bird? Is the comb and wattle development of this bird the same as others the same age?
