    Looks like a pullet to me too. My girls are about 2 months old and their combs are small and flesh toned. Their waddles are small and also flesh toned. I think if it was a roo, the comb and waddles would be red by now.

    I vote pullet too.

    This little RIR guy is only 3.5 weeks old in the pic and has less feathers than your girls but look at that comb growing! It just took off and grew "overnight" the day I took the pix, hehehe it's redder already and Saturday was the 4 week birthday but I haven't gotten any newer pix yet.

    You can see the girls below him, they have tiny combs compared.
