Only one of 24 eggs took and this is s/he. Thoughts on gender?

The cock in link is nice. I'd be hoping for a cockerel myself. There is only three New Hampshire hens in that photo the others are unique as they are mixed breed.

I thought the palomino was a new colour in new Hampshire. What (other than colour) are the distinguishing features that make it not a new Hampshire?

Skin color is the biggest give-away. New Hampshires have yellow legs/skin. Most of those hens have white legs/skin. There is at least one frizzle hen in that group as well.
