I read that an early tail means it's a boy and then I read the opposite. Just got it from wilco I think it's 2 weeks old not sure though.

Tail growth isn't an accurate way to sex. They say Barnies with a lot of black early on are more likely to be male. That is the only trick I know. I think you should wait until it is at least 5 weeks old before trying to sex this chick.

Is that black tail a bad sign? I tried to pick the most feathered bird in the group.
 
I'm just so afraid to end up with another roo. My family is new to chickens and we get so attached. I'm having a hard time rehoming the one I already have.
