Wellsummer? Light brown leghorn? Neither?

    ... and while I'm at it, is all hope lost that it's not a roo?
    The best I can say is that (s)he is a few weeks old. We got this one and 2 others from a batch that included a wide variety of breeds. In the linked video, the one in question is the little one in the foreground. The other, we're pretty sure, is a golden laced Wyandotte.

    It definitely a rooster. It's not a welsummer or leghorn because it's legs are dark, maybe a game.

    Adding this photo to help with the roo (?) predictions. The blue legs really have us confused too. Just can't find a good solid match for this bird online.

    Not sure the breed, but looks like a rooster. Sorry.

    Very pretty though. If you are not allowed to keep roosters/ you don't want him, I think it won't be that hard to find a home. We just had to re-home our rooster last week. Breeders are usually willing to take them. It might be best to hold on to him before you know for absolute sure though, because some of our other chickens that we were going back and forth about turned out to be hens. My profile pic is of the roo that we just had to give away.

    Fortunately the seller assured us he'd gladly take any back who turned out to be roosters. We're already attached, but we bore this in mind. Sorry you had to rehome yours. Thanks for the feedback.

    That looks like this little one a week or so ago, with the exception that ours has blue legs.

    Ok, let me do a little more searching to see if I can find out the breed. Did yours have blue legs when they were little? As in, before they grew in feathers.
