This a rooster?

I'm thinking yes, but need to know age. If it's under say 4 months, definite rooster. And not a pure Rock but a mixed breed.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

The rooster is not pure. His overall dark color and uneven pattern show he had one barred parent, not two. The hen's wavy comb could show mixed breeding, or could be funky hatchery stock. 

 

And yep, at this young age, anyone with a red comb like that is male, sorry.
