    I asked about the gender of one of our 3 month olds in a previous post and people started speculating that our other 2 were cockerels also, so here are better pictures...does anyone know if these are male or female? It's super wet today, so everyone is soaked. Sorry.

    Both look like males, unfortunately.

    Thanks everyone. Today we took two back to the feed store where we got them but I kept the black one...I was holding out hope that he Is a she, but now I see all of your feedback. He's super gentle and calm. We have 8 hens. I don't know if I'm ready for a rooster, but how hard could it be? This chicken raising is full of tough choices!

    Answer: not that hard! Roosters are fun and pretty. As long as your neighbors don't complain, you might as well keep a nice gentle rooster. We love ours.
