2 months old,
They all look like roosters. Full body shots would help though.
Darn I'll try to get full body shots
check the neck and saddle hackle feathers- males have pointed hackle feathers and females have rounded hackle feathers.
If you are solid on 2 months (8 weeks), then I agree...they look like roosters all...but full body shots would be better.
That's a lot of pink/red comb on the lot for pullets for 8 weeks.
EE's also follow a general pattern wherein the boys will be blotchy in pattern like a quilt while the girls will have even patterns like a kaleidescope.
Any color blotch, especially red/brick/dark mahogany on the wing bows, will be male.
Black and white coloring is predominately male in the EE world. Gold partridge is usually female, but that is a lot of comb on that red bird, which is also not the typical gold hackle brown partridge pattern of a female EE.
Full body shots will help further.
If they just are 8 weeks old, I'd say cockerels, but they seem to be older than that to me. Age can make a lot of difference.
The green iridescent plumage is starting to show up, they are in fact Roos
