    I'm guessing this is a male. They said it was about 4 months old, looks like a rhode island red.

    Thanks,

    It's definitely a cockerel, and with those long tail feathers I'm thinking it's a game mix.

    I agree it's male, and red colored, but it's not a Rhode Island Red. I'm with Michael, it looks to have some game influence.

    Definitely a rooster, mixed breed or hatchery quality Buckeye.
