    We're allowed a commercial sized flock of hens where I live, but sadly Roos are not allowed. My neighbor down the hill is having an absolute fit over this bird.

    G’Day from down under Anapsid [​IMG] Welcome!

    I had a look at your pictures on the Gender Forum and I am sorry to say that I am also leaning towards cockerel.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
