I got this chick four days ago and in the confusion didn't notice it was twice the size of the other three chicks. It is very curious and always looking around. Any ideas on age or gender?

If you picked it up at the feed store then it's probably a week or a week and a half older than the others. So far it looks like a little girl

Thanks. I did get her at a feed store. I'm hoping for a pullet. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Only a week and a half? Wow. Do barred rocks grow faster and bigger than say a gold sex-link?

Looks to be about two weeks old to me. Its too young to tell gender-- post again in a few weeks.

I would say that it is around 2 weeks old. I don't see any obvious rooster characteristics, but it is too young to tell for sure.
