A possible pullet in my flock of Barred Rock roos? What do you think?

If you've been following my chicken saga you know that I took in 30 abandoned Plymouth Barred Rock chicks that were all thought to be roos. Over the past two weeks of development there is one chick who stands out from the rest. He is the same size as two of the other smaller chicks but he's a little darker, squattier, has a smallish comb and has a different tail shape than the others. Could he be a she? Tell me what you think?

IMO I think it is just a slower maturing roo. It lacks the darker coloring down its legs and still has a much redder comb than my female BRs had at that age. Sorry.

Here is a picture of one of my girls at 6 weeks (about how old yours look to me).

And another of the same bird at 3 months. Just starting to get waddles.

Well so much for wishful thinking. Thanks for the replies! I have found homes for most of my chicks so all but 4 or 5 will be leaving me this week and I will be ordering some pullets to go with them at a later date.
