    Hi :welcome from Yorkshire England!

    Glad you could join the flock! I would say yes it looks like a cockerel as for breed I'm not sure I see you have already posted in the what breed gender section I'm sure some one will be along to help you indentify them.

    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    X2 on Yorkshire coop's comments. Looks like a roo. Do post in the what breed/gender forum to see if you can get identification.

    Glad you have joined us.

    I hate it when females morph into roosters. Seems to happen more and more every day. My theory is the males pretend to be girls till you get attached to them. Then they surprise people thinking they won't get dumped. It doesn't work that way.
