They looks to young to sex for sure but I think Olive and Rosie have a good chance of being cockerels.

It is harder to sex chicks accurately by there wings then by the development of there combs/wattles. You can (when they are older) also sex them by there tail feathers, cockerels having saddle feathers and and sickle feathers that pullets will not have.

Having a comb isn't an indication that it is a definite cockerel, the size and the redness are ones that are more accurate. But I would post again when they are older.
