    The ones with less feathers on the wings are most likely males

    Way too young to tell. Post pics when they are 8 weeks or older, it'll be much easier then.

    If you purchased sexed pullets then odds are that is what you have. If from a hatchery and didn't specify not to send extras then they always toss in a few males to get rid of them. Anything extra you didn't order is a (vent sexed) male.

    Pandapaw23 made a good point that females feather in faster and a quick glance of chicks wings easily tells which are female and male in a straight run.

    BTW, I really like the look of chick on right in second photo. It's a classic owl look and really interesting. No idea what breed it is.

    I agree. If you want the most accurate judgment, you have to wait for it. No one can ID just out of the shell but, everyone seems to want that.
