Did you breed these? Hatch the eggs under broody? Where did they come from? That would clear up some confusion. Black sex link males are barred and female black that leak red coloring, especially around neck, as they get adult plumage. Red sex link females are yellow when chicks.

The bird in question came from a farm. Black sexlinks are a cross breed so there is a huge range of what pullets may look like, depending on what breeds were crossed.

No, I got eggs from a local farm and a broody RIR hatched them. Her legs are black and she is solid black, no red markings.

I think Junebuggena and Michael are right.
