Hen or Roo? Or too early to tell?

I got two RIR at the same time from TSC they were labeled as Pullets. Now that they are about 5 1/2 weeks and I think one might be a Rooster but I'm not sure. What's making me question it is; it is bigger in size, the tail feathers are a bit longer, and less mellow than the other RIR.

She or he is the lighter, more brown bird :)

I agree, they do look like pullets but it is a bit early to tell for sure. Two of my buff orp pullets had that extra little "foof" when they were quite young. Now, my buffs are 2 years old and that extra "foof" is a beautiful fluffy behind!
Post more pics as time goes by, they sure are pretty!

I'm not sure. Their tails try to convince you that they are roos. Their comb size may mean they are roos too, but it might just be the breed. I have a hen with a LARGE tail and when I say large, I mean it.
