    [​IMG] Not sure what breed or mix of breeds Gerty is, but I'm positive that he is a cockerel.

    Cant tell very well from the pictures but he may be an Australorp Roo. He looks too black to be a RIR. My neighbors Australorp Roo has reddish and greenish tints in his feathers in bright light. Handsome.. what ever he is.,

    I don't have roosters but my neighbors Roo is one of the great ones. Large, handsome and friendly. Hopefully this runs in the breed. That would be nice luck for you.
