Do you still think this is a pullet?

He/She was about 7 weeks old in top pic. Bottom pic is 10 weeks old. I am concerned about the long tail feathers curving at the top of the tail in the bottom pic. But I will post a better overall pic tomorrow when it's lighter out.

Do hens ever get the curving tail feathers?

Yes, a lot of EE hens have slightly curved tail feathers.

A better picture would be helpful. That's a rather red comb for a 10 week old pullet.
