7 week old chick gender question?

I bought some chicks from a local breeder when they were a week old. I don't have a camera to take pictures but I will try to describe them. They are supposed to be pure New Hampshires but some looks like they are cross bred to me.

I have a few chicks I feel is cockerels because they have red combs long wattles (I can't tell by the tail yet)

I have some I know to be pullets because their comb is yellowish still and not too big

Then I have some that has big pink colored combs and some of these has small wattles and some don't have wattles yet.

I am sorry I don't have a camera to take a picture of these chicks. None of them are aggressive towards me. One tried to attack me before and it hasn't happened again.

as far as i know the pinkish colered ones at that age should def. be hens...but dont take my word...
