    Yes- that's a boy. You said he's large fowl? Looks like a Mille Fleur project cochin, but I've never seen one that wasn't a bantam. Cool!

    ETA: look up the Mille Fleur Cochin thread in the Breeds & Genetics forum- might help you figure out what to do with him breeding-wise [​IMG]

    He's a roo, and I'm betting he's a red - I've got one just like him only in bantam, and all his siblings were the same color.
