I wish I could be of assistance to you but I'm afraid I'm not good at sexing chickens. I myself am just getting acquainted with them. Maybe someone else from this site will be able to assist you better than I but if I was to be a guessing person I would take a guess that you have an Easter egger roo

@Mother Hen thank you that is what she said she thought it was but I have never had an Easter Egger and for some reason it is very protective of the cochin that we bought with it

I'd say its a cockerel...but I don't think it's a Cochin....
....looks gamebirdish, but maybe slim because young, but I'm not great on breeds.

My cousin who is more used to chickens says to look at it's feet, if it has a spur started then it's a roo and if no spur then it's a hen
