This little ones legs are looking much thicker than its siblings, a potential sign of a male per what I have read. Too early to wager a guess as to sex? Any suggestions for sexing the remaining flock?

Any suggestions for sexing the remaining flock? Breed? How old? I've found legs are the poorest way to sex a chicken. I've had some with thick sturdy legs and they were just big girls. If they're all the same breed, sometimes I can tell early by looking at them all together, noticing difference in combs, carriage, size, coloring. Some you can tell fairly early, others not.

I don't see anything screaming male so at this point, I'm thinking pullet. Its comb and wattles don't appear to be large or red for its age (although they are blurry when I expand the pic which makes it harder to take a good look at them) which is typical of male chicks.
