They look like red sex links and in that case, they are all pullets, there's no way to mix up the males and females with red sex links.

With these particular birds it's their color, but it general you would look for comb and wattle redness and development (cockerels have theirs turn red and grow in much sooner than pullets), and then as they get older you would look for long, shiny, pointy hackle and saddle feathers (the feathers on the neck and above the tail) - only cockerels get these. And as they get even older, cockerels get long, curved tail feathers called sickle feathers, which pullets also do not get.
