    I know it's a crappy picture, but my real camera is in the car and I'm refusing to get dressed and go get it, so you get a cell phone pic.
    But, if you can despite the quality, roo or hen?
    Edited to add a couple more pics

    It looks like it might be a cockerel. How old is it? And is the color bad on the picture? Because it looks to white to be a BO

    That looks like a pullet to me. A cockerel at that age would have more pronounced male features, such as a larger/redder comb and wattles.
