I agree they're light Brahmas, which means they can be a pain to sex! Brahmas are a slower maturing breed, so sometimes the cockerels don't really show themselves until closer to 5-6 months old. I'm not seeing anything screaming rooster at this point, but can you get closer shots of their combs? Brahmas are pea combed, and a rule of thumb with pea comb breeds is one row of peas up the middle means female, a triple row means male.

Those combs both say roosters
I sure hope I'm wrong, but you might start preparing everyone for the birds to go to a new home.
