Yes, you are right, it is a RIR pullet. Also some pullets develop faster than others. My 7 week old BR pullets combs starting pinking up at 5 weeks old. Posted in a thread asking if it was a pullet or rooster and everybody except one person said she was a pullet, and they were right, she turned out to be a pullet indeed. So don't worry if you see a little pink in the comb now, nothing to worry a about. The color that indicates rooster is red. Bright red combs= rooster; Pinkish combs=pullet. HTH:)
