This Barred Rock chick, four weeks old, has me wondering. "She" has much more white than my other two BR, started her comb very early, is much larger than all the other chicks, and much jumpier/ less sociable.
Anyone have any thoughts on sex? Sorry about the poor quality! Thanks in advance!

Your lighting is not the best, but at this point, still looks like a pullet to me. Dark all the way down the leg fronts to the toes is another clue. Hatchery stock, right?

Sexing clues are not always 100% accurate and good daylight photos with no glare are best for sexing because color is a key factor with BRs. If there isn't any pink in the comb by 4 weeks, also leaning toward pullet.
