The three your showing are all male. No single comb female will have red in comb at this age. They don't start reddening until point of lay which may at earliest be 16 weeks but usually 20-24 weeks of age.

Only males combs, with single comb breeds, show red as chicks. By 7-10 weeks of age it's obvious by comb color alone.
