I am not really good at this, but my Silver Laced Wyndotte is just a bit younger than yours and she is definitely a hen. Yours appears VERY much the same as mine. Only the one brown in the back looked a bit suspicious to me....

Thanks for the reply and info. I don't know how old they are...I rescued them and a crippled rooster which was raised in a house and small cage. I feel sorry for him as he is very big and has deformed feet. Looks like I will have fine now.
Thanks

Kind of a guess but somewhere around 6 weeks maybe a bit older. Their heads appear fully feathered but not the sides of their faces is why I say that.
