We got six new pullets last June, including this Americauna. S/he is rather shy, but bigger now than the others, and has longer, yellower legs. I'm still not good at determining if this is a roo. Can anyone tell?

Thanks!

Yep, it's cockerel. See those orange feathers hanging down in front of the tail? And on the neck, plus the red patches on the wings? Those are all signs of a male.

Thanks, everyone. I hate to be partial because he is beautiful - but we have no use for a rooster. So far he has not crowed. And he runs from most of the hens! So far... no roo behaviors, but no doubt they'll be coming.
