    It is too young to tell for sure. However, going off of the dark "legwash," I'm leaning towards your bird being a pullet.

    There isn't a spot on the back of the head. That's why I'm questioning this too.

    If there is no spot it is not a barred rock. You may have a black sex link pullet.
