    The person we got it from said it wasn't a leghorn but wasn't sure what it was. It's about 5-7 weeks old. Any ideas as to breed or gender? TIA

    Looks like a Leghorn, a standing pic would help. Does it have white earlobes?

    White earlobes about guarantee a Leghorn then.

    With large, red comb and wattles at 5-7 weeks, likely a roo.

    Leghorns are a little more difficult when they are young. As cockerels and pullets both develop large combs very quickly.
