I'm not 100% sure, but I'm leaning toward cockerel.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

Given the light barring and the size of the comb at 5 weeks, it looks like a cockerel. Female Barred Rocks typically have darker barring.

Update: Even though I thought it might be a cockerel (& so did the responses I got) its a pullet.

Thanks for the update. It just proves once again that for every rule there is an exception where chickens are concerned. :o)
