    What do you think about Teddy? This is my first time with a Cochin he/she is about 5-6 months old.

    Teddy has always had a greenish sheen all over anyway so that is what was confusing me but I have been starting to notice pointy saddle feathers and I am just in denial. No crowing yet and NO eggs. The other Rooster that I have that is 5 months old is a Buff Orpington and he is huge and has huge waddles and crows. There is no mistake there, but Teddy with not long waddles or comb and no crowing I was just hoping for a hen.

    Sometimes if they are not the dominant rooster they will develop slower. And sometimes their rooster characteristics will not be as pronanounced as the dominant ones.

    Teddy has always been in a seperate pen from the Buff Orpington Rooster too. They have never been together. I was thinking about the whole dominant thing too but they havent even been together. Guess I am just in denial. Hopefully I find him a few good ladies.
