The top one is a hen and is probably 6 months to 1 year old.

The second picture is two cockerels and looks like those boys are around 5-6 months old.

The Sebright cockerel probably around 6 months old and the sebright pullet may be a bit younger, but close to the same age as the male.

The two in the second photo are cockerels for the reason you just stated.

Male Barred Plymouth Rocks receive two copies of the "barring" gene. Females only receive one. It's a sex-linked thing. Plus, you can see the faintest of pointed hackle feathers beginning to creep down...
