    That is a lot of white, would vote possible cockerel right now if BR and that is a big head spot... does s/he have pink/white bottom feet, or are they yellow (can't really tell from the pics) could also be a Cuckoo Marans maybe?

    The bottoms of her feet are yellow. What does that mean?

    yellow means it is indeed a barred rock and not a cuckoo maran since both have similar barring

    I'm leaning towards cockerel. We'll know for sure in a couple more weeks.

    I'm trying to remember what my BR pullets looked like at that age...I think they were darker. It is possible to have a lighter pullet, but I would guess cockerel right now.

    The coloring is a little light, but I'm still leaning towards pullet.

    I can see the pictures now (before I was looking at the reduced versions on the side) and I'm going to change my guess to pullet. It has dark legs, which is (usually) a pullet trait.
