    That is a big white spot and prominent comb for a female. Would vote Rocky right now.

    I'm leaning toward male, but it's really too early to say for sure. Post again in a month or so for a double check.

    I thought so too. Well, on the bright side, with so many roos I'm going to have lots of space for new chicks in the spring!
