You're welcome. I don't personally think that there is any chance that it's not a rooster. :o(

So guess who found his voice this morning?! Yes, I was greeted by this fellow's first crows (or attempt at) at sunrise this morning. Back to the farm he goes.

If you're exchanging for a pullet, don't get a black and white bird. there are black and white female EE, but the difference is subtle and takes an eye to spot. I'd just avoid them and for a red/gold bird. Avoid any red patches on the wings, you want a smooth, even color overall. And the comb should not have any red to it whatsoever, just a fleshy pink color.
