The two smaller Brahmas on the bottom look a little too young to sex. The one on top is probably well developed enough to sex. What you want to look at is their breast feathers. Any solid black feathers coming through in that area mean you've got a cockerel. In pullets, breast feathers should look like the rest of the plumage on the body.

I'll attach pictures of adults to show the difference. The male and female color patterns are very different.

X2. :) So far, it appears your largest, most developed Brahma is a pullet. Would you be able to update us in another few weeks?
