Hi all, we got 10 chickens about a month ago, they are black and red sexlinks. From we can tell they may be 10ish weeks of age, no one knew how old they were when we bought them. We have one that looks way different from the rest, could this one be a rooster?!?

It’s possible. Large red comb but not much wattle growth. Some females color up quicker in some breeds.

can you post a good pic of that one from the side while it is standing?

Looks like a cockerel, but not a sexlink. Black sexlink males are barred. Where did you get them?
We got them from a farm store in western IL, I did some research when we first got them but couldn’t tell exactly what their breed was. So we just went with what the store told us.
