If it has white earlobes, it's a leghorn.  If it has red earlobes, it is most likely a white rock.  If a leghorn, it will lay white eggs - eggs will be brown if it is a rock.

From the comb and that tail, my guess is Leghorn.

Leghorn

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Agreed; given it's body type I'm thinking it's a White Leghorn.

I lean toward leghorn too, but it would be better to have pictures of the bird standing, side shot, rear, and face. I have a leghorn who started laying a few weeks ago. She has white skin near her ear that kind of has a shine to it.

Looks like a White Leghorn pullet to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
