    I got this cochin that I was hoping was a hen but the more I look at him the more I'm seeing a roo. Problem is I think he's pretty nice so give me you thoughts. Is he nice enought to hang on to.

    He is about 5 months old but hasn't crowed yet. My other roo have been chasing him around so I thought for sure I had a hen. By the way he is a standard.

    Thanks

    He is pretty. I definately see a roo. I would keep him unless they start fighting. They try to give him to someone local so you can still visit.

    He is very handsome! I like the deep buff coloring (my favorite!) I would say keep him if he stays nice and sweet. Try him on a girl to see what he produces and compare them to what your current roo is throwing. I would love to have the space etc. to be able to do things that way!
