    Hello, I just hatched my first and only barred rock 2 days ago. I've read about telling the gender by the head spot, but of course this one isn't looking so clear to me as the pictures I've found online. Do you think this is a girl?

    as newborns to me its kinda hard to tell with the headspot. Wait about a week. Boys will start to lighten up girls will stay dark. By 3 weeks you will be able to tell by the comb. Boys on BR's get combs early and they will pink up early.
