So when you took the pics they were about 2 and a half weeks old? They grow and change a lot in just a weeks time. Post again when they are at least 1 month old and mostly feathered.

X 2 - when you take photos at 1+ month of age (6+ weeks is even better) you should compare them to these photos and you will be amazed at the huge differences you see in such a short time.

These photos are not really going to be too useful in answer your question regarding gender -- to really see a bird and get an idea of what you have the photos are best taken in a natural, full, light and showing the birds from the side in a natural, standing position as well as a nice frontal comb shot. Photos showing those angles best show the characteristics we have to see to determine gender.
