    No doubt that's a cockrel. All those pointy hackle and saddle feathers, and only boys get that red coloration on the shoulders. He'll start crowing any moment, if he hasn't already. It sounds very little like a crow at first, lol. More like he's trying to gargle something [​IMG] Time to break the hard news. That's a Marty not a Mary.
