Could anyone help?

I have 9 2 week old barred rock chicks. Could anyone help me tell if they are all hens? And is this one a runt or what?

No one's pinging my roo-dar right off. With a group of barred birds, you can usually spot the male as they feather in as they're much lighter overall and have more of a grey look than a black and white look. I'm not seeing that with this group. 

 

I'm not sure on the last bird. Is it possible she's younger than the rest? She doesn't look as feathered. Or, she may be a runt or just slow to develop. I have a barred Rock pullet right now who is kind of "special", slower to develop and just not quite right. She's currently living with the bantams and a silkie while I see how she turns out.

Roo-dar haha
That's awesome!
Good news to hear that there might now be any rooster though I would have minded to have just one.
Lady Gaga(our runt) she is the same age as the others. I bought them when they were 2 days old. I have watched after her to make sure she gets food and water. She is hilarious to watch her go under the bigger chicks to get to the food. She may be small but she is mighty 😊
Thank for your help!!
