Also the lack of rose comb says barred rock. Not sure if this is a good or bad thing but it sure looks like a rooster, I.e. cockerel to me with those tail feathers coming in like that. I was going to say hen otherwise. Hopefully someone proves me wrong.

I have the exact same thoughts. It's male and has one barred rock parent but it's not pure barred rock. If it were pure it would be a lot lighter in color, plus the leg color is off. Call him a black sex link cockerel if you need to label him.

The color looks like a Barred Rock pullet. I would think at the age range it appears to be it would be crowing by now but I would also think it would be laying if it were a hen, with a comb like that. It will do one or the other soon i'm sure!
