Black sex links are a Rhode Island Red/ Barred Rock cross not a Barred Rock/ Rhode Island Red Cross.

I should have specified black sexlinks are usually a Barred Rock hen crossed with a Rhode Island Red rooster.

Thank you! I figured as much since he's always looked different from the other girls. He's always been bossy britches of the bunch too lol. I've grown quite attached to the little guy so I'm torn as to what to do sigh. We may need to rehome him.

He's a typical male who thinks he needs to supervise all the ladies me included lol. He's turned into quite the handsome roo. He's very good to his ladies too.
