    Hard to tell with those pics. If there is any black in the chest feathers its a roo. In the pics where your holding it they look pretty dark so I would say roo.

    It is a male light brown leghorn, there is no such thing as a "brown leghorn" there is only light and dark brown leghorn.

    Just to let you know ahead of time there is not much meat on a leghorn and even less if he came from a hatchery. He might make a good snack [​IMG]
