What breed are my girls?

Eve and Eve are five months old. Sold to me at 2 days old as Buff Orpingtons. They are obviously not. Medium sized, flighty, late to mature. They are also super ugly. To me they look like an RIR cross. Any thoughts?

How old are they? I agree, I can't see the combs well enough to say for sure. My first thought is generic hatchery red hens, but those should have straight combs.
Come on, it's ok, they are a little bit ugly. They have very tiny almost non-existent combs. They're 5 months old. I thought Buckeyes too but I read somewhere these days they were pretty rare.
A lot of the big hatcheries carry Buckeyes now, Ideal, Cackle and Meyer all have them for instance.
