    She made a loud nois today and we are afraid it was a crow attempt. About 4 months old.

    4 months with that much red I would say you have a rooster. Also look at those thick legs!

    Nice looking Dominicker cockerel you've got there. Unless my eyes are ailing me, which they are at my age but I digress, it looks like a nice rose comb that is decidedly male form. Not to mention the fine neck feathers.


    Note the point on the comb below. (photo courtesy random Google image copy and paste)

    Given the size and redness of its rose comb and wattles at 4 months and that light barring, you have a Dominique cockerel. :eek:(

    Thanks for the replies. Breaks my heart because meredith grey is my favorite. She was crowing like crazy this morning.

    So sorry! [​IMG] It's the worst. Why it always seems to be the "favorite" that turns out to be the roo is a mystery to me. It's something we all go through.
