First time with a flock, my chicken Barred Rock (I believe) is 9 1/2 weeks old like the rest of my chickens, is it a Rooster or a hen?

That is a cockerel. A single combed pullet will not show any red until point of lay. Unless you meant to write 19 1/2 weeks old instead of 9 1/2 weeks it will crow instead of lay eggs.

Bummers! No wonder why is a lot bigger than the rest of my hens, they all are 9 1/2 weeks old.
