    That's def a cockerel sound. A pic would help with identifying. Usually the saddle feathers near the bird's tail will be pointed if it's a boy. This is my buff orp cockerel, you can see the pointy feathers near his tail that indicate he's a male. 0715171832[1].jpg

    Frida looks like a boy to me, but some other more experienced people are sure to chime in. Very pretty!

    I'm no expert but that definitely sounds and looks like a rooster.
