No not yet - that's what i thought they are not very pointed at the end - presume if they start crowing that's when it will be obvious?

Yes if you hear crowing you have a boy. I'm 50/50 with these right now as the redness makes me think cockerel but the tails make me think pullet.
Did you buy them from a breeder as female?

With the tails as they are I would say pullet, some females do and can become redder earlier than others even of the same breed. While you don't have crowing, your all good :D
