I'm glad I asked, I totally thought that females had dark spots! This is all great to know!

Yep! You should be able to sex it that way as long as it doesn't feather in white. The white masks the barring. I have a white leghorn I didn't know was barred until I hatched a little sex linked cockerel from her eggs. Couldn't tell he was sex link until the wing feathers came in barred.

Here's an updated photo. Does anyone have any thoughts of if its a pullet or cockerel?

Actually a Cream Legbar pullet can hatch with a white spot on her head. A pullet's spot will be small and crisply outlined. A cockerel's spot should more closely resemble a white smudge on his head.

I think it's a cockerel  - it seems to be developing   red/brn  coloring near wings  and shoulders.

It's feathers have come in pretty dark, but it's the same color as my cream leg bar hen.
