    That bird is 100% male. Just look at his long, thin, pointed back and neck feathers; those are something only males get.

    Yes, just two days ago. I awoke to the sounds of crowing this morning so your all right, she is a he lol

    I bought him from the nicest young man aged just 16 who is chicken mad and learning everyday, he doesnt do it for money and knows alot about them but learning all the time. He knows about the situation and really is upset as he was sure it was a girl and offered to come and collect him. I told him its not a problem and wouldnt give him a hard time as I suppose we all have to learn.
