At 8 weeks, that's a pretty red face. The legs are also very long. I don't know about barring patterns but I know you can tell from that too. At this point, it looks like a cockerel.

I would wait a bit longer to make an official call though. Listen for vocalizations like crowing and more growth in the comb.

Good luck! :)

Buffalo can be seen in comparison to the other Dominiques I have here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/introducing-the-ideal-dozen.1469451/post-24705861
