    Do you have pictures of the tail? or full side pictures. Since its 15 weeks, it should be easy to determine with full side pics.

    Im going to say fast developing pullet. I don't see any pointy saddle feathers, and no white patches on the wings.

    I think they are both pullets. Your larger-combed hen is just a little more mature, and probably closer to laying

    Thank you so much I just wanted to make sure I was not looking forward to 3 roosters, how come she is maturing so much faster then some of my other pullets of the same age.

    Some will lay before others, like in humans how some hit puberty before others, just genetics.
