    Coppa yes, is a boy, Cinnamon looks..well, in the middle. I'm leaning roo though. No, I don't think your Polish is a boy! [​IMG] Zeebs looks like a Dominique. I was about to say Barred Rock, but then I looked closer at the comb... From what I can tell it looks like it's a pea comb. If so, then it's a Dom. [​IMG]

    And Belle is beautiful! And [​IMG]

    Quote:hiya thanks for replying.im so gutted about coppa,ive been reading up and some people say you can put them in a blacked out box/coop ad trick them by letting them out later in a morning and in later on a night.not sure how true this is,but anythings worth a try cos i dnt want to get rid of him,ive fallen in love,we had a feeling cinnamon defo was a boy,the tail feathers are gettin bigger and bending over more,and theyre turning green,belle s beautiful isnt she,i just fell in love with her,had to have her,her colouring is lovely,xx

    Maybe it depends on the rooster, but I don't know that keeping them in later will keep them from crowing. My Ameraucana rooster crows (loudly) all day long. We have neighbors about 1/4 mile away who have chickens, and our roosters crow back and forth continuously throughout the day. Good Luck![​IMG]
