    I found some hocks on my pampered little man, so its nice to know I can stop wondering what gender Arlo is. His deformity made them hard to find. He has such a big pretty red comb. I took him to the Tillamook Fair this year & he had fun, met a few goats, a cow & sampled popcorn & a walnut. I bought a plushie for him & carried him around in his basket. I'm officially homeless now, living with Dede who Arlo lives with. Now I get to spoil his feathery fanny every day instead of twice a week! He's sitting between my feet clucking. Today he ate a blackberry, some grass, Peanut Butter Suet, a couple of ants & drank water all while sitting on my lap being petted. He makes the cutest cooing sounds. The husband is at the State Hospital & will be there for up to 3 months. I miss him so much. It was very hot yesterday so I went to the Wilson River & splashed around in it.

    I'm confused, all animals (mostly) have hocks, regardless of gender... [​IMG]

    It's better to use the hackle feathers and saddle feathers as an indication. Spurs can grow on hens too. [​IMG]
