Need to see a full body shot, without hands in the way. Barred Rocks can be sexed by coloring. Females are darker, with thick bands of black. Males are much lighter in appearance and have thicker bars of white.

she is dark, and also has dark legs but the wattles throw me off. she hates being handled, and that was the best picture i could get. she’s a feisty one for sure

What color are the legs, can't make it out from the photo. Still much too young. At 8 weeks when fully feathered out, should be easier to tell.

Gender ID photos work best if you don't hold the bird. It takes time a patience to get the right shot, but it's worth a hundred bad photos with hands in the way.
