    That's not a white Leghorn, or is it? In your pics, it looks like it has red earlobes. The breed could make a difference with this one. Also, a close-up full body shot would help.

    I'm leaning toward rooster, but a profile shot is really needed. Include the legs and the full head.

    I think that it is a rooster. The comb and wattles are large and red, and it just has a rooster's "look" (I can't explain it--sometimes I can just tell a rooster by its face and eyes!)

    I didnt even realize the earlobe thing. I should of paid more attention. If it is a leghrn I say pullet, if it isnt I say cockerel. Could you tell us breed,if you know it, and post a full body pic?
