This breed has me so confused these “gals” are 4 mo old. One fully feathered quickly and is twice as big as the other 2 started showing red comb and wattle around 2 months the smallest is yet to get tail feathers but not red the middle sized no tail feathers yet, just getting sides of wing feathers and started showing red comb and wattles at 4 weeks including pics of the 3rd in question or “sheep” as he/she is black sheep of the group.

At 4 months, some hens have reddening combs, so the first two pics aren’t suspect. If all pics are of 4 month olds, then I’m not seeing any saddle feathers. I have not had this breed, so no personal experience.

if possible, take pics of each from the side, standing in bright light if possible. Make sure combs/wattles can be seen.

your second set of pics look like a poorly colored light brahma, pullet.
Yes 2 light brahmas in the second set of pics...I’m not much concerned with color...I got a Brahma cockerel from a breeder he looked much the same but is shaping up to be a handsome boy lost most of the black. But they look like pullets? But the black one cockerel? And not light Brahma? Edited to add my current cockerel who lost most of the black from 2.5 mo to now at 7 mo
