Ok, you're not a rooster! :lol:

Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I think it may be a pullet, how old is it?

Is that a buttercup? Looks like it would be old enough to be crowing by now. I would call it a roo, the girls don't have the impressive comb.

It almost looks silkie, brown leghorn cross to me. That could account for the large comb. At 24 weeks (approx) I would expect a red comb. Look for saddle feathers, I can't see any in this picture. Any chance of more pictures?
