    Hi there!
    Unfortunately only one of the photos is showing -- that photo shows what appears to be a cochin chick, as far as gender, its a bit early yet. All that can be said is the bird is not showing obvious signs of being a cockerel, but that can change in the coming few weeks. Generally speaking it is best to assess gender at 6+ weeks and some birds can keep you guessing well beyond that.
