    Its hard to tell in your pics but by now they should be getting the green heads if they are males.
    If the heads aren't completely dark yet, you will start to see darker feathers (usually a dark green) around the eyes and slowly work its way to cover the head.

    One other sure fire way to tell is to voice sex them.
    Pick them up one at a time. The loud ones are females, the more quiet, raspy sounding ones are males :)
