    No, I'm sorry, I'm not. 100% sure that you've got a boy there. He has saddle feathers (the long ones hanging down before his tail feathers) and sickle (the ones that grow long and curved from the tail) feathers starting to grow in. Not to mention hackle feathers on his neck. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. [​IMG]


    ETA... but he sure is handsome! Can you keep him?

    Yes, that is a young cockerel.

    I *think* his color is crele - but not 100% sure, could be a barred blue with lots of leakage. No idea on breed.

    Who "gifted" him to you? Maybe you can re-gift him right back. [​IMG]
