    100% rooster. He's got nice pointy orange saddle feathers, located between his shoulder and tail. [​IMG]

    ETA: Both of the chickens in the back ground are 100% roos too. [​IMG]

    I bought the chickens when they were small. One was suppose to be a hen and the other a rooster. Both turned out to be roosters. Lots of learning to do.
