    I believe he is a boy also. The long pointy hackle feathers and the larger comb are clues. Looks like my boys and not my one (wish there were more) girl.

    He looks like a boy, went through this last week with photos on here. Everybody here said a boy and this one looks exactly like mine. I heard a crow and couldn't figure out who it was, sure enough, a day later he crowed in my presence.

    Here is the post...page 2 and 3 has his photos
