At 7 weeks....I'm so sorry....but with that much red comb....roo imho :hide

 

Have you thought of a No Crow collar if you truly are in love with the bird and can't have the crowing?

You can make one yourself...I've not tried one yet, but I've heard they really do work if you take time to make sure it fits correctly so as to work but not choke.

Cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

With a comb and wattles that large and red at 7 weeks, it is definitely a cockerel (Tommy Joe); sorry. :o(
