    My first thought is hen, just from the look/shape, but how old is it?

    Hen. I'm not seeing the pointy hackle or saddle feathers on her. [​IMG]

    At two to three months, cockerel. (this is why it is important to list age, it makes a difference, if it was 5 or 6 months old I would of said pullet).

    yeah at 2-3 months old I'm changing my mind on that one too. Look at those feet.

    I think it's a rooster. Very tall and long legs for hen. Also the comb is large and red for his age. Hope it helps!
