    []Hi gang. I've stared at a ton of pics trying to determine if my little dominate hen is a him. Saturday found Gertie in the middle of the yard making not quite a cockadoodle doo, but close. Soooooooo, what is it? Boy or girl?

    Right. I see a long link, but no picture. If you can, copy and past the actual picture.

    "Gertie" is definitely a cockerel. See all those beautiful hackle feathers?

    Your Gertie is a Roo. May want to look into a name change for the guy..something a little more masculine. It's kind of tough for a guy to take charge of a flock of gals when you're name is Gertie.
