    Have you contacted a moderator for help or clarification? Maybe you need a few more posts anywhere on BYC before you can add photos.

    Turning brown wouldn't make him a cockerel. Indicators of being a White Leghorn cockerel include size of comb/wattles, long and pointy hackle feathers, long saddle feathers, appearance of sickle feathers, and later on obviously crowing and chasing the gals around. If he's turning brown he's not a White Leghorn but something else entirely. How old is he?
