    I am a first time chicken owner and am very happy with my two and a half week old chicks. While I bough my chicks 'sexed' and hoped that meant they were all female, I am now having suspicions about my barred rock.

    I have attached a picture of the chick in question...please let me know what you think. Male or Female?

    ((I am also happy to take more photos if it is too hard to determine from these. My suspicions are from her irregular shaped white spot on her head and light grey underbelly.))
