    The White Chinese strikes me as a gander, but with the others you'll have to vent sex to know for sure. Behavior and voice can give you an inkling as to sex -- ganders tend to carry themselves more upright, are more likely to be hissy, are more social with humans, have a shriller voice, etc -- but it's not fool proof by any means and if they're young it's even less accurate.

    Sorry I lost your call, btw. I don't know what happened.

    Do you have small animal swaps in your area? You might try rehoming them through a swap. Craigslist is another possibility.
