Are these Cockerals or pullets?

Mumbles is a lavender Araucana. I don't think it's a Cockeral. What do you think?
Cemani is the white one with the black beak. Pullet?
The red fluffy headed one (Araucana), not sure of sex.
Thank you for your input.

The images don’t show much but here are three methods you can use.
1. growth males grow to be larger, females are always smaller.
2. Males develop feathers at a significantly longer period most males take 2 to 3 months to fully develop feathers females usually have a fully develop set of feathers covering all the way within 1 to 1.5 months.
3. males have larger more obvious combs. The rules apply perfectly on pure bred breeds but not with a mixed flock since some breeds are larger and barely have combs.

There is also coloring to consider. Even coloring generally means female. Uneven, splotchy coloring and/or darker patches at the shoulders generally means male.
