    Did you want the breed or gender?
    If breed I don't know, if gender definitely a handsome boy!

    Without a doubt, it's a roo. The breed is probably a hatchery cross. What hatchery did you get him from? That'll help narrow it down the breed hopefully.

    i figgered on a rooster...

    i don't get my birds from a hatchery... i know this old boy in the next town over that has ~150 birds and i got a bunch of week old chicks from him a while back.

    reds, australorps, easters, you name it, he's got all sorts.

    likely a mix of a mix, based off a leghorn???

    The second one is an easter egger hen(Maybe a mutt ameraucana but unlikely.) If your breeder doesn't monitor what breeds to what, I'm going to go with the mutt option. He's probably part leghorn, but I have no idea where he got that color pattern from. His cape reminds me of Frisian gulls, but those are very uncommon.

    It's hard to tell with mixed breedings, you don't know which parent will give more dominant traits.
