Yup, those are pullets. :)

I agree, it is really easy to get confused with all the ways to tell roos and hens apart. Your hens are a little older,  that's why they have red combs.

Sorry, I should be more clear. I meant that at a certain age the roosters only will have red combs, but in a little while the pullets will also; I'm not sure the exact age that they get red combs, but even before the pullets are adults they will have red combs. :)
