    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. I'd suggest posting on the What Breed or Gender is This? forum for expert advice.

    Best wishes

    Oh what a doll, I'm not positive but I think that is a Barred Rock chick. Usually they prefer chicks at least 6 weeks old at "what breed or gender is this." They aren't clairvoyant - many breeds start out the same color.

    It's not written in stone but BR males have yellow legs and females have a black wash down the front of their legs. The will start showing barred patterns on wings etc, as they get older.
