    In the picture you'll see my Marans (black/white) and then my Gold Sex Links(Brown/White) and then my single Rhode Island Red(solid brown). Can you tell if the RIR in the pick is a cockerl or not?

    Thanks,
    Shaggy

    Lost, I fear.
    Without having pictures that back up the comb evidence, I'd say he's almost certainly a cockerel.

    I had a feeling that it was a cockrel but wasn't 100% sure. I'll take a better close up pic tomorrow and post.


    Thanks,

    The first photo was evidence enough given the age relative to the development and color of comb/wattles -- he was, and still is, a cockerel.
