She (?) has really changed a lot over this past week so I was hoping someone can identify her breed, and maybe sex, now?
    Any guesses are appreciated. She’s starting to get really interesting, and a little mean. I will explain the meanness later.
    Here’s the new pics.

    Are the legs as white as they look in the pictures? If so then I would guess it is an Old English game bantam, maybe of the mottled color pattern. A little too early to sex in my opinion.

    i think pullet but im no expert
    in my opinion males are friendlier when they are young but how many weeks old? at 5 weeks, the ladies should have more feather development than boys.

    Yeah, the legs are light colored, and she’s kind of mean.
    I made a trip back to the TSC today to buy some food and ended up bringing home some more straight run bantams (I couldn’t help myself). I have them in a crate that is touching, but separated. A couple of the babies slipped through. She is the only one that attached them, she chased them and pecked them until I removed them.

    Both sexes could do that-- aggressive behavior is not gender specific, especially so early when the male or female hormones haven't really kicked in. The comb on this bird does look a little on the large side for a bird that young. If the comb goes pink or red soon then it is likely a cockerel.
