My gut/pics are telling me cockerel but for the sake of my family loving this one I’m hoping it’s a she! No other barreds to compare in our flock.

Welcome to BYC though! ❤️

If you are not allowed go keep males and want to rehome him, I recommend starting now. Males can take a while to rehome and most people do not take in males, even if they are free.

In this shot, you can see three or four light-colored black-and-white striped birds clustered together near the center of the picture. They are Dominique cockerels. Lower down, slightly to the left, is a darker bird, also striped black and white. That's also a Dominique, only she is a pullet. Although they are not Barred Rocks and the feather patterning is different, in both breeds it is true that the males appear much lighter than the females because of a feature of the barring: the males have more white. Your bird is identifiable as a cockerel primarily because of the wide white barring in his feathers.

Thanks! The farm that I received them from will take back any accidentally sexed as hens but I’m going to have some sad humans who have been raising “her”.
