    I just KNEW he was a cockerel from day one but needed to be sure. He always stood up straighter, sounded alarmed at EVERYTHING especially if I dare to pick him up, even his "cheeps" sounded different. This got him the name "Chicken Little" because the sky is always falling :barnie
    The running joke when we're outside cuddling the chicks (because all the rest will nothing short of abuse you with attention) is asking Chicken Little if he wants a hug.
