    I agree, it looks like a cockerel. What color are the legs? Are the legs feathered? Both of those things will help narrow down the breed.

    If the legs are yellow, I'm guessing it's either a silver leghorn or a silver pencilled rock. A leghorn will have a lighter build and will develop white earlobes. A Plymouth Rock will be heavier and have red earlobes.
