    maybe this will help
    Q: How do I post pictures on the forum? On my BYC page?
    A: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/inserting-pics-in-on-the-new-byc

    Also BSLs are sex-links which means they can be sexed by color, as baby chicks (without feathers) boys will be black with a white dot on its head while the girls will be black without the dot. As they grow the boys will be barred and the girls will be black with some brown around the necks.

    How old is it? The coloring is indicating pullet because a BSL cockerel would look like this:

    Definitely female - as you see above, it would be barred if it were a male BSL
