How old are they? Are your brown leghorn/welsummers featehred in on the breast yet? If so, that is your tell - females will feather in with salmon breasts and males feather in with black breasts.

The Barred Rock looks like a pullet to me.
These are mine when they were little. There was a lot of variation in the amount of black to white and their comb sizes. They are all pullets. As long as your Barred Rock's comb doesn't turn red before 10 weeks, it's a pullet.
