    It's a roo and it's got white earlobes but otherwise it doesn't look like a brown leghorn to me. Maybe something gamey, although it's not quite light enough. I'm guessing a mix.

    It's a rooster for sure (you'll never see a hen that color).

    With it's single comb and white earlobes it's for sure not a purebred Dark Cornish.
