I am trying to figure out if this is a boy or girl. I can't have a rooster! Approximate age is 5-6 weeks. Thanks!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Is this a hatchery bird?  It's barring doesn't look right for Barred Rock.  Males generally have yellow legs - females have a black wash over their legs.  BUT, the legs on your chick are really thick - another boy feature.    You'll do best if you post your photos at  "what breed or gender is this."

It is a chick from a local farm. They said it was a Barred Rock but I guess it could be a mix? Thanks for your input!
