Help sexing a chick

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what little baby is. Got them 5 weeks ago. Bantam cochins. 2 of the 4 I have I am fairly certain are cockerels. This bird has a small comb compared to the others, but it is looking more and more pink to me. I do not know if they begin to turn pink at this age in pullets. I have a buff that I am pretty sure is a pullet and she has no pink color whatsoever in hers even though their combs are the same size.

Thank you for your help!

Thanks for the responses! Anyone want to give a tie breaking opinion? :)
Here is another picture just for the heck of it.
Hrm, I agree they are all most likely roos. I have noticed that male Cochins have a habit of growing combs early. In the last picture, is that a random patch of isolated red I see on the wing? That would be a definite case-settler on the side of roo.
