    At 5.5 weeks there is too much redness in their combs. If you want pullets, I would walk away from them both. The patchy colouring on the second one also suggests roo.

    I'm not saying 100% that the first two are roos but there is a good probability.... I'm 85% confident.

    That last one is more difficult and I'm not leaning either way at the moment. Post another photo in a few weeks.
