    Only two of the photos are showing up on my computer, but both look like hens.

    Different breeds mature at different rates. Some chickens get huge wattles really fast, others develop them really slowly.

    All are mature, or very nearly mature pullets. The red combs and wattles indicate that they are just about ready to start laying.
