    Well I am about 99.9% sure he is a boy. He is a 7 week old EE. I think he is going to be a very handsome little man. Out of our 5 EEs he is the only one who has developed such a large and very red comb, plus I think he is starting to develop sickle feathers on his tail, and he kind of tries to crow (which is more of a gurgle sound right now). What do you think? By the way I am calling him Martok (since his comb looks like a Klingon forehead).

    I would agree with you and believe that is a very handsome male too.

    He is super sweet too. Always tries to ride around on my shoe and peck at my foot until I pick him up and give him some love.

    I too think he's a roo and he looks like my only two golden laced wyandottes which I am afeard are also males. Why be afraid? Because I'm only keeping gals and hoped to have at least one wyandotte. ooooh.
