I don't have much experience, but they look like girls to me because my RIR who are 6 weeks old have way larger redder combs and and the beginnings of wattles.

Here is a picture of one I am 99.9% sure is a boy:

and here is a pic of what I'm pretty sure is a pullet (left) and roo (right) sorry he wouldn't sit still!! a little fuzzy.

bluebyrd----all of yours look like pullets

RIR roos feather much differently and imo slower than pullets do. mine at 6 weeks were not nearly as feathered out as my pullets were. and their feathers were different on their backs than all the others. Reds tend to get large combs and wattles in both sexes I believe...so it's hard to go by that when trying to figure out who is a pullet or roo.
