    Ok, my Cochin Frizzle who we adored started crowing (at 5 weeks) and according to the town we can't have roosters. So we rehomed the little guy (boo hoo) and I went to get another little feather-footed from a lady who wasn't quite sure what she was. Any guesses? She said they were 4 weeks -- she is very cute but still not sure about me --flaps a lot when I pick her up. The other chicks I have are 6 weeks and were very nice to her -- no pecking or anything. Thanks for your best guess!

    Perhaps a Golden Laced Cochin?

    I just re-read your post...Where's the forehead-smacking smiley when you need him?! [​IMG] Sorry, you were asking for color, not gender! On that, I defer to Speckledhen. [​IMG]

    Looks just like my little girl's bantam partridge cochins. They're 4 weeks old also. [​IMG]

    Quote:Hey gender helps too!! Trust me I take and advice on here I can get!! BTW my Cochin frizzle who we had to rehome had bright red combs and wattles as well-- pretty funny -- there was no 2nd guessing that he was a roo!!

    Golden-Laced Cochin or Partridge Cochin -- sound like a good bet. I had looked online but it's hard because a lot of pictures are of adult hens or day olds -- not so many of them in their awkward 4-5 weeks!! So --thanks for the help!!
