Are these sex-link or something else? Do I have all roosters? How old are they?

    This is my first time raising chickens for eggs. I bought six chicks on June 3, and the guy who sold them to us seemed unsure what breed they were. He mentioned some kind of silver laced chicken and sex link. All of the chicks look the same except for one who is just reddish brown. They all have 4 toes. As they get bigger, they fight more and I'm worried that all I have is roosters.
    Can someone identify possible breeds, gender, and age?

    When we got them on June 3:

    it looks like when you got them they were a few days old. and about 6-10 weeks is the best age to sex them.

    They look to be about 6 weeks old. None have big red combs (though the browner one is looking a bit pink) or big red wattles sprouting so they look like pullets at the moment (though that could change). Not sure on the breed but they could be crosses. Keep posting pictures as they get a bit older and we'll try to help.

    Some type of red layer breed. Production Reds or Cinnimon Queens etc... All pullets, roughly 5-6 weeks old.
