Hen has a pointy tail near vent, is it a rooster?

    Hi I'm new this site and I just got my first batch of chicks yesterday! I bought 6 of them from Tractor Supply and 4 of them were pullets so they should all be girls, but I know it's hard to be 100% certain. One of my chicks was louder than all the rest and has a hard tail feather that the others don't have so I was curious if there was a chance that's she's actually a he? I can't have roosters here so I want to make sure none of them start waking the neighbors if I can. Thank you so much!

    Can you include some pictures? Without seeing the chicks it's nearly impossible to guess but also if they're very young that could make it difficult too. Look forward to your pics!
