    I actually WANT this one to be a boy. I only have three Blue Cochins, and I need one to be a roo [​IMG]




    No crowing yet, but I THINK I might see some saddle feathers? It's so hard to tell with these puffballs.
  2. gosh, it's hard t tell, but in the last pic I **Think** I see pointed tailfeathers. Add to that the huge waddles and comb...I'd say boy. how old?

    I thought I saw some feathers that looked like they wanted to be saddle feathers in the 2nd pic of the cockerel. [​IMG]
