    There are quite a few breeds that look like that as chicks. No way to tell what breed, with any degree of certainty, until it's about 6 weeks or older.

    The coloring on the feathers looks like a Barnyard Mix to me. It's not looking very masculine, but it's still early to say if it's a pullet for sure.
