    Could you get a picture without the netting? How old is it? From what I can tell in the picture the barring looks like a pullet, the legs seem to have the black wash, but that comb (depending on the age) is indicating cockerel.

    I'll be in the barn!
    Looks like a cockerel with the huge comb and bold white. The feet are strange though, as BR males usually have yellow feet.

    That's what I was thinking, but then again hatcheries don't keep quality traits most of the time.
