    Cockerel, and from personal experience both of the Wyandotte cockerels I have had were horrible. If he starts giving you problems, find him a new home. (or send him to camp, given your personal preference) mine didn't get any better, but I gave them plenty of time. Needless to say they're gone now. But he is a very nice looking bird.

    Dang it all! I can't have roosters in the city! He is super sweet, and I had hoped I was wrong. Time to send him back to his momma.

    Beautiful bird. I have been having better personalities coming from my roos than hens...lol They seem to be sweeter, too.
