Hey knowledgeable ones, we have 2x 8-10week old black australorps one is definitely a pullet but im very unsure about the other. Here are the pics of them. Female def the pale one so no dramas there, but the one with slightly larger comb is much more vibrant and it tried to go our 16wk old barnevelder roo, but now runs away. Could this mean we've been sold a roo instead?

Since you say that there's already another cockerel, I'd keep an eye on this one. Its likely its a pullet, but I've also had cockerels that sneak in. Once one is established as dominant, I've noticed that sometimes the rest take longer to develop.

Thanks everyone, i really hope it is a female, and that bubbles isnt a Bublé lol.
My 4.5yr old will be shattered if we end up having to rehome it. These are all her babies. Our barne boy hei hei is a stunner already and looking after our two little girls who are only about 5- 6 weeks they follow him everywhere. Hoping to get some great looking chicks from him and our girls.
