    Those dark feathers usually mean rooster, but there has been some darker pullets coming out of some hatcheries lately. You might have to wait a bit longer. The comb looks pullet currently. Most need to be closer to 5-8 weeks before you can tell for sure though.

    Agree with this. Those funky colored birds the last, what, 2 years or so? Really threw off sexing by color.

    did the bird come from a hatchery?

    Yes - there are two for chicks and one for waterfowl that they source through most of the time. For SF I would suspect the source is Privett as I don't believe the other chick source hatches SF.

    Much too young but, the black feathers give me thoughts of cockerel

    Guessing Cockerel but easier to figure out when older (6 - 8wks), post pictures again at that time and update us
