    Somebody in my flock is a rooster! I have 20 birds, all 3.5 months old. I've pretty much narrowed it down to two birds, can anybody tell me if this Dominique is a Roo?

    I think I see a pointy hackle feather too. I'd agree, roo.

    Quote:I think you need to post more pics - the guy behind your Dom (a Polish?) is also a boy. I would bet you've got more than you think.

    Yes, he's a cockerel and so is the Polish that is behind him.
