unsure of age, has dark feathering, dark legs, but reddening wattles. barred plymouth rock.
Still too young to tell
It looks like my Barred plymouth hen right now, that's my best guess. Give it a little more time just to be sure
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.
I think it’s a rooster since Hens take far longer to develop their comb.
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.
the legs have black on the front of the leg from knee to toe.
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.
Please wait until 6 weeks, then post pics of the comb.
