    These are some chicks from my first hatch. They are 11 weeks old.

    The one closest is the one I am wondering about...is it a rooster? They are mixed breed ( white leg horn and golden sex link)

    I would say pullet in the first shot, the Barred Rock, a rooster and the last one pullet.

    Yep, the first one is a pullet, the second looks like a cockeral and the last one is a pullet and looks like a BSL (Black Sex-Link).

    I would agree, but don't count the Barred Rock out yet, because the pictures of Barred Rock hens I've seen have pretty large combs and wattles.

    The barred one is certainly a male with a comb that big at 11 weeks.
