    Hey all! This is my free exotic chick from Murray Mcmurray. Wondering if anyone has an idea on breed and sex? He's about 2 months old. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Can't help you with breed but it looks like a rooster to me. That's a lot of big, pink comb for an 8 week old bird.

    I'm thinking black Cochin, but it's hard to tell without the tail feathers! The other guess would be black Langshan. And he's a rooster.

    I have a black Cochin and they look a lot diff from each other. This one doesn't have as feathered legs and isn't as round. Stands very tall too.
