Are these roosters?

    They are Mille fleur and Cochin mixes.
    Is the one with the lighter comb a hen? She is about a week older than the other two. She was born on sept 10 and the other two were born on sept 18. They are younger than her but their combs are a bit bigger and are more of a pinkish red color. So I was wondering if they are both roosters? The one on the right in the first picture is the on I think is a hen. She is on the left in the second picture, the one next to her is one of the two I think is a rooster.

    Far too young to tell they need to be at least 4 weeks and even then it can be hard to tell
