The voice will tell you. Above and before feather color.
Plus I have a half rouen that was born black but started initially with a green head. The head got greener, and the speculum feathers started to show, then all the black turned color change in different lights like the speculum feathers... and a few months later she started laying eggs.
Yours clearly aren't that scenario. But that's my anecdote for color guessing. I was so confised because the green head didnt match thr voice coming in.Lol
I have never been wrong on the voice.

Give it another week or two and you should definitely hear a difference.
Females are much louder and have typical duck sounds. Drakes are far quieter and have a raspy sound to their vocalizations.
Having multiple it should be even easier easier to start hearing the contrast between genders.

I think i have five drakes!

 

I might just get rid of the females and just keep a all male flock instead.
