    At that age, with so much comb development, that is a cockerel. I don't know about breed.

    Could you post a pic? I got this one and an Easter egger whom I am pretty sure is a cockeral. He is older by a couple weeks and is always jumping at and pecking this one. This one stood up a few times but usually runs around and away. I am worried about the red comb and it may be older than I think. The shape of head reminds me of a pullet where the ee has a manly big head. This ones eyes are rounder and is more dainty. However, I have seen it fluff beck feathers once when the ee jumped at it.

    x2 Im thinking an EE crossed with white leghorn, the comb is mixed between straight and pea, and it has smaller puffy checks, so basically an EE.

    Sunshine- that would make sense. Since I believe they came from the same farm. Hard to tell on gender for me. The comb is weird but red. I guess I will just have to wait. I wonder what color eggs if that's the mix. Blue?

    That red a comb at that young of an age (going by the size of the bird, not necessarily your stated age) is male. Agree he could be an EE/leghorn mix, but with that straight comb probably wouldn't have blue/green egg genes anyway.
