    When I bought this chicken I was told it was a cochin hen but the next morning it was crowing like a rooster. I am wondering if anyone can help me out determining what sex and kind of chicken this is...any help would be appreciated. It is a beautiful chicken nonetheless;)[​IMG]

    It's hard to tell without seeing the feet/feathers... it's a beautiful picture, and certainly looks like a roo, but possibly a mix.

    Can't really see his feet- so I have to say buff brahma roo or buff columbian cochin roo. And a banty.
