    From what i can see i vote roo most definitely. Comb and wattle seem offly big for a hen. Also the feathers on the back are pointed and hang down.

    So if he is in with all my hens, chances are I have some fertilized eggs on my hands?

    most definitely fertile eggs on your hands. He is old enough to be fertile.
