    Too early for a guess and you don't mention age.
     
  3. For fun sake...I guess hen. :)

    You will be able to tell the sex on a Barred Rock by 5 to 6 weeks. Their colorations (cockerels are lighter) comb development and sometimes leg colorations give it away fairly easily.

    Wish ya the best.

    Ps: impressed by the grass growing in the desert.

    I agree that it's too early to tell, but, if you want to hazard a guess based on a couple of things.....the barring in the wings is pretty dark and it has a dark wash down the front of the legs. Those are hen traits.
