    ahhh...i am not an expert but it kinda looks boyish to me [​IMG] i hope not tho so you can keep him!!! Is there an ordinance at your place about roosters or something? too bad there wasn't a safe and painless way to stop them from crowing loud....


    what i never understood was what is the big deal about a rooster crowing? Theres no ordinance about wild birds singing...LOL! <----wild birds insure I keep my windows shut in the morning so i can sleep past 5 am. LOL

    by the way in picture three, the one infront of Peepers pecking at the bike looks more like a rooster to me than peepers does (i see saddle feathers or atleast taht's what it looksl ike on the one in picture three messing with the bike *the one infront of peepers) ANND it looks liek it has a bigger comb.


    then again, im not good at sexing EEs that young lol!

    The only thing that say's roo to me is the pointy tall feather's. With the EE's the comb on a roo will be raised more than on a hen, or atleast that is how they are on mine. I had a hard time telling roo from hen.


    Edited to add: I don't know..... [​IMG]
