    Welcome to BYC.
    I'd guess boy.

    Can you tell if the feathers around the neck area are coming in pointy?
    Picture is kinda blurry.

    :welcome
    Do you know the age? The wide white barring, bigger redder comb/wattles, and the legs with out black wash which is a BR pullet trait makes me think cockerel.

    How old is the bird? It looks much older then just a few weeks. I am guessing you got started chicks not day olds.

    I think she is to dark to be a male and I do not see the saddle feathers looking male.

    Just saw the age post.

    At that age that is a female. The comb is much to small to be as male and no male saddle feathers.
