    I got this frizzle mix from a breeder a few weeks ago. She said it is a Frizzle (Cochin, I assume) male mixed with a Wyandotte hen. She didn't know exactly how old it was or exactly which pair it came from. It looked about 2 weeks old when I got it, which would make it around 4 weeks old by now. Any idea on the gender?

    Looks like a pullet for now, but it is too early to be sure.

    I agree; but keep an eye on that comb. If it reddens up over the next few weeks, you will know we were wrong and you have a cockerel.

    Ok thank you guys. It's a strange looking bird, it was one of the breeder's projects, I believe. With some of the wing feathers being white underneath so far, I think it will be pretty when it matures.
