    Looking forward to pics.

    My roo definitely dances. Never had it in a pullet, but I see others have.

    Also, some hens crow. And one of my definite cockerels totally egg songed when startled the other day. And some hens also get spurs.

    I'm definitely going with cockerel. [​IMG] Poor baby, but he's still adorable even with that wry neck. [​IMG]
