First 2 are roos-thicker legs and have roo color pattern to feathers. The last looks like a pullet so far by feather pattern, but those legs are huge!

I think they all look like roos. Got red combs and thick legs.

I have 4 SLW that are a little older than your's.  I believe mine are 3 pullets and a cockeral.  The three girls have yellow, straight looking combs and the boy has the red flat comb that yours have.  I am afraid that you have 3 cockerals, as well.  Sorry, I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear.

I kinda' like that other team, too.  How could you not like a team who's mascot is a War Chicken?

I thought roosters feathered slower than pullets so figures the ones covered in feathers were pullets.

I have no idea at all, but I checked this out because I have a SLW that is also just 4 weeks on Monday.  I am pretty sure she is a she, she doesn't even have a comb forming yet.  I was surprised to see all the combs on yours.  Maybe this week they will come out more.
