    They all look like pullets to me. At 4 months old I would expect developing combs and wattles like I see in your pics. I'd expect a much bigger comb, plus prominent saddle feathers, in a roo.

    The first one has is starting to get the curved tail feathers. Also his coloring is a dead give away you will hardly ever see a hen with that color. The red leaking through the gray at the base of the tail is another factor.

    The white also has the curved tail. If you look at your pullets they all have full straight tails and the other two do not. Also they have roo faces. Its kinda hard to explain what a roo face is, but after you raise chickens for so long you can normally pick them out by their faces and body shape.

    Their ages would help better in ID'ing roos.
