    So I'm not so good when it comes to identifying male varieties.
    He's a Bantam Cochin, but not show quality.
    Any help/advice is much appreciated.

    Mine looks just like him, Birchen. Though mine has white feather tips on his chest. Maybe I don't know what mine is.

    I believe he'd be called birchen, although he looks very gold vs silver. Is he that yellow in person?
