    No problem!
    Are you going to re-home him or keep him?

    I was in denial last year when one of my Australorps got a comb early on. He looked completely different from my other 2 but I held out hope until the day he started crowing! I don't have experience with Ancona's but I've read that the male's mature pretty young so I would guess you've got a cockerel there.

    He's going to a friend who has more, if he was a girl he was going to my mum so he had homes either way! :) xx
