    Still a bit early, but judging by the crests, I would guess pullet on left and cockerel on right in the first picture. I've been told that the waddles are usually the first clear giveaway. A pullet will not get red waddles until just before laying, but lots of red early on indicates a cockerel. I have a blue polish a week older than yours who was just diagnosed a male based on his red waddles. That thread is recent on this site if you want to take a look.
