Hopefully I am doing this right, first post here :) I am a new chicken owner, I have seven chicks, three of them are "Amberlinks" purchased as pullets from Tractor Supply. The biggest of them has a bigger, redder comb and wattles than the others. They are probably about 5-6 weeks old.



The third picture in the bin is what the other two look like. Thanks!

Amberlinks are wing sexed rather than by feather color so mistakes aren't obvious until around four to seven weeks when the comb either goes through rapid growth and darkening or it doesn't. They also have a good dose of Leghorn blood in them which can give some pretty big combs/wattles. I wouldn't call it just yet. The next two weeks will be telling. No change = likely pullet, big change = cockerel.
