I'm worried I have a rooster in the bunch, it's tails pretty short and I think it's getting a bit more of a comb, any good way to sex them, I only want laying hens :/ thank you for any help

Depending how old they are you can feather sex most breeds, and no black feathers do not mean females. If there to old to feather sex you'll have to wait till you hear a crow. Sure some breeds you can tell early by combs but sometimes females will have a good size comb till shell she grows into it.
