First 2 are females, 3rd one looks like a male. That color the females have speckled chests and males have plain orange chests and more defined face markings. Some (especially young) males will have some speckles on their chest, they should disappear after a molt.

^^ I agree with Lozuufy. The first two are hens; the third is a male. Once the birds settle in, I'm sure the male will start crowing and confirm your suspicions. :)
