It may be too early to tell, but does anyone know the gender of this Barred Rock chick? It’s approximately 1-2 weeks old. Thanks!

Much too young. Please put up new photos at 8 weeks of age, when it will be much easier and chick should be fully feathered out by them. Then Can we please see whole bird photos including comb? There is more to breeds than their feet.

Looks pretty black and the legs are pretty dark for 2 weeks as well. I'd guess pullet.

until the feathers come in, anything will be a guess. The lucky thing is that BRs have very obvious visual male and female feathering. Males are much lighter than females, with wider white barring, whereas the females have wider black barring making them look darker.
