    Hey so about a month ago we bought a 6-month-old cockerel and have a few questions about him/her. Its a 3/4 Ayam Cemani 1/4 Americauna (Dads a full AC, Moms a half AY x half Americauna.
    I have not heard him crow or seen
    1. What gender is it?
    2. If its a rooster and I were to breed to my hens what will the offsprings look like (hens, BR, RIR, ISA)
    3. Also, he/she doesn't have a name yet so if you can leave a name suggestion that'll be appreciated, thx

    How old him/her? It looks like a young pullet, but I might be wrong.

    Cockerel. Black Onyx, maybe a good name, or even Obsidian.

    If its 7 months old it looks like a pullet to me. Deep square tail and no sign of saddle feathers I can see.

    Can you get a better shot of the saddle area? from the side? I swear I see a few male saddle feathers, not as many as I would expect for a 6 month old cockerel. I'm not sure if I'm just seeing lighting issues or not. The comb says female to me... but I'm not certain.
