Wrong breed in sexed pullets bin - is it likely to be a pullet?

    So I just picked up six brown leghorns from TSC and realized as I was putting them into the brooder that one is definitely not a leghorn - the face is much more speckled like a gold-laced wyandotte. The bin at TSC was labeled pullets... my question is, what are the chances this rogue GLW is a pullet?

    I might keep the GLW just because (and name her Rogue, of course), but I already fell in love with a barred rock cockerel (stole my heart at 2 weeks!) and don't want to chance keeping another bird that I won't be able to get rid of - I already have 3, or 2 if I decide to keep my sweet boy, for my capon project.

    Also, a couple (far back, back left) are darker brown while the other three are reddish. Just color variation?

    I think the chances are 50 50 on the pullet question.
    I think it could be any number of chipmunk looking chicks.
    Perhaps even a SS.
    I think the darker ones are Brown Leghorns just dark ones.

    Congrats on cute chicks.
