    looks like a blue marans cross with an ee to give you an ee rooster but he probably doesn't carry the colored egg gene since he has a single comb

    without an age it's only a guess but so far looks like a pullet

    My first impression was boy... But age would really help as those legs look quite thick.

    Tricky, looks boyish but I can't see any pointy saddle or hackle feathers.

    Are there feathers on the legs?

    I also think cockerel, but age is kind of critical for this. I agree, those are some tree trunk legs!

    How many toes? There's something about those white legs and its face that makes me wonder about the possibility of it being a faverolles cross...

    No idea on sex but my own faverolles cross pullet has really thick legs, so there's hope!
