    X2 on cockerel. Sorry. :eek:(
     
  6. Have you looked into getting a crow-collar? It's a little collar that goes around their neck preventing them from releasing all the air in their lungs at once, making crowing quieter... My pet chicken sells them but they're really easy to make.

    I'm sorry, but he is definitely a rooster. Good luck with finding him a home!
