My guess would be male, but I'm certainly not an expert.
Here was my Dominique at hatch. I thought her head spot was tough to tell. (Irreg shape) Her legs definitely had a black wash, so I was hopeful.
Here she is today at 20 weeks old. A male would have a larger comb & lighter barring (more white)
She's always following me & watching everything I do. Can't wait to get that 1st egg!
If purebred, I would guess the one in front (on right) is a clear female. Females tend to have more black barring & the males have more white. The one in the back is too difficult to see well. The middle one has a little more white, but it isn't an obvious male. By 6 wks, you would begin to see pinkish combs on any males. Their combs also grow larger. If all the combs look alike, then chances are you have all females.
