What do I have? This chick is 5 weeks old.
Are those feet yellow or pinky-white? If yellow, it looks like the coloring of a Barred Rock pullet, a breed I raise, but the comb seems to have pink in it pretty early on for a pullet, if that's five weeks old. If the legs are pink, I'd say Cuckoo Maran. However, if it was a cockerel, the color would probably be less black and more silvery looking.
The legs aren't really "yellow" like I see on my wyandotte...but they aren't as pink as my orpingtons. Behaviorwise, this one acts like a pullet.
Looks like a pullet of either breed, depending on the leg color. Could be a dark cockerel; sometimes that happens, as well as lighter colored pullets, but I think that one is a pullet.
I'll be thrilled if it's a pullet. This chick in particular is very friendly.
I love Barred Rocks for friendliness and egg laying consistency. Great breed.
Barred Rock, no doubt. looks like a hen, too.
I think female BR.
