    I completely read the title wrong and I thought you meant what "breed and mix gender" is it and I was thinking...eh? I know some chickens can be gynandromorphs but the chances are very slim. I see now you meant breed mix but still...lol!

    I know next to nothing about chicken breeds but I'm going to throw my guess in anyway.

    I think she's a light brahma and I'm guessing pullet.

    It probably is a roo...like I said, I know next to nothing about breed. I didn't mention, I know next to next...than nothing, about chicken genderizing.

    The reason I said pullet (and for some reason I still think pullet) is because of how low the undercarriage and chest is to the ground rather than up near the sternum. In cockerel pictures I have looked at, they're standing in more of an "upright" position than the females...not by much at that age, but still a little bit...and their chests are further up on the body rather than down near the undercarriage.

    Cockerels look like button-poppers and hens look like apron bellies is the only way I can describe it. haha

    BUT I don't know about chickens is the thing...not quite yet anyway. lol
