    What breed?

    Likely too early to tell. Nothing screams boy yet.

    Than that chick is a boy. Sex linked.

    The barring gene from the mother only passes to the son, and not the daughter. If the father was the barred rock, it could go either way.

    If the barred rock was the mother, her female chicks would be pure black to start out and possibly develop some gold in the neck/chest.
