like humans, birds can sometimes have androgynous features or characteristics (e.g. Prince and David Bowie). You can always try vent sexing. I think there is a guide somewhere on the forum on how to do it.

Also some birds have slightly different sounds. One of my lil ducklings makes a noise like a growling puppy.

I think it's a gold male. The males have brownie faces whereas the girls have light faces. How old is he?

I've just seen your other post. What will you do with them all as it sounds like they are all male? What a shame.

Very sensible - can't be doing with more than 1 male in a group. Good luck with the eggs.

Hi,

The bird in the photo is a gold male, there are no doubts in my mind.

Not all males crow the same, even when I'm in the house, I can tell which birds by their crow, males hatched from suz's eggs are very quite crower's, while other have louder crow, they all sound very different.
