This is probably the 3rd time I have inquired on this chicken, but I haven't gotten many responses, one person said pullet, another said cockerel... I'm so curious! :confused:
So, here is a bunch of photos of a ten week (bought as a pullet) Plymouth Barred Rock.

Pretty sure a pullet. See her head spot? It looks like it has a pretty defined shape. And at 10 weeks, she still has very dark legs and the white bars are pretty narrow. Males usually have lighter legs and lots of white.

My girl also had a large comb and wattles early on, and surprisingly red. Here she is now at almost 2 years

Looks like a girl to me (lucky)
What it is her behaviour like?
She is very friendly, she will run up to me when I get near. She likes to sunbath, and is fairly quiet when it comes to chirping. She also seems to boss the other chickens around a bit. If one girl is flapping her wings she will run right over and get really tall in front of that particular chicken as if to calm it down. Also, if any chicken goes out in the run without her she gets mad and rushes that chicken back inside or follows that chicken out.
