    It's difficult to tell its gender from the angle the photo was taken. A profile picture clearly showing the tail and saddle feathers could settle the issue.

    I will try to get a better picture of it when some of the it's feathers grow back because the dog who had attacked it at the previous home plucked a lot of the tail feathers from the body.

    A profile shot now would probably clear up gender. Breed is mixed, enough no specific breed jumps out.
