Are my hens really roosters?

Hello, and thank you in advance for any help. I bought 2 chicks from a local feed and seed store about 6 weeks ago. I was told they were definitely females because of their coloring, and that they were cream legbars. They seem to have a rose comb that’s turning pretty pink. I’m not sure if this hold true for all breeds, but I thought a pink comb so early meant rooster. Also, are they even cream legbars? Any input is appreciated.

I would say they were wyandotte mixes if they hadn't come from a hatchery. Maybe a new hybrid that involves wyandotte? Definitely not red wyandottes, since those are very rare and wouldn't be found in a hatchery.

They might be cockerels, but it really is too young to be absolutely certain.
