    The RIR are pullets, yes there are some Dark cornish pullets in the bottom picture. Roosters have the brighter combs but they are harder to sex than the single comb RIR 's

    Males are shinier, Combs are red-er, they are bigger and are darker colored.

    Your 3 Red ones are Production Reds not Rhode Island Red (R.I. Reds) and they look to be girls, as for the Dark Cornish there looks to be a good mixture of Roosters and Hens.
