I agree with everything you said.From the pictures, I like the hens more. They are more balanced, in my opinion, and have nice head carriages and width of body. Their tails could be a little less pinched at the top, but are overall nicely wide and the correct shape.
The males' tails are wide, but they need more density of feather, especially the top one. They are a little long in the back and rectangular instead of being circular in shape.
Overall, I think you have some good birds. I would pick the top male over the bottom male, but any of the females over the males.
