    Could be a Barred Rock, Dominique or a Cuckoo Maran.
    Do you know if it has a single comb or a rose comb?
    If it has a rose comb it is a Dominique
    If it has a single comb with yellow legs it is a Barred Rock
    If it has a single comb with white legs it is a Cuckoo Maran

    Here is a link that will help you with the comb types if you don know..

    Also, can anyone tell if its male or female? I'm leaning more towards female considering it has more black than white, I really hope its a female...

    it's hard to tell in that picture, how big is it?? is it large fowl or bantam??
    does it have feathered feet???
    it looks a LOT like my barred bantam cochin baby i have running around.... i don't have a pic of it right now, but here's a pic of his dad

    i have cuckkoo marans and barred rocks too, and could be angle of the pic and the way it's sitting, but it kinda looks cochin body type....

    how old is it??

    Its just about 3 weeks old so it can still sit in the palm of my hand. It does not have feathered feet, there is a slight dark wash down the front of the legs and feet though.

    a grayish over a yellow leg?? if it has a straight comb it would be a barred rock.. if it has pinkish legs it's a cuckoo marans, i'm not sure of the leg color on dominiques, and they have a different comb i think..
