    I know he/she was born in November. Believed to be a barnyard mix with an Ameracauna in there some where. Any thoughts?
    She/he is beautiful. No crowing. Very nice temperament. Hoping for some green eggs!! Fingers crossed

    Any green eggs would have to come from his daughters. He's a cockerel.

    Dang it! The crown is so small I thought there was a chance and no crowing.

    See those shiny, pointy hackle and sickle feathers? A sure secondary sex characteristic of cockerels.
