Can anyone guess if this is a male or female? I am a new chicken mom and we can keep a roo sadly. Hoping for a girl!!

Looks like a pretty little pullet, what about the solid black one behind her?

The one behind we just have to a wonderful home yesterday. He turned out to be a roo. Black Austrolorp and his sister was looking nothing like him. So we figured it's better to find a home before we get too attached! Makes me so happy you like our Barred Rock is a little girl. Would be devastated if we had to get rid of 2 of our 5.

Post another pic in a week or so and we'll probably be able to know for sure, but I think pullet

I would say pullet. The roo is going to be much lighter. Almost gray with a little black, whereas the hen will be black with a little gray. Here is my 4 week old roo

And here is one of my hens
