So, Based on the experiences I have had with wild ones that I have caught or seen in the southern bay area near San Mateo county. (including babies that were only a few inches long.)
All of the males I see have hook shaped spurs. Like the one that you claim male in the picture, It is definatley male. The one in the second picture is at a weird angle and can possibly be a male also, If you can send a pic of it with the same angle as that male I can say for sure. (Females have a more cone shaped smaller spur)

Color of spur is a variation that can even happen within the same locality. Shape and size is the key, even in the smaller southern rubber boas that I have seen in the san bernardino mountains. I will take a picture of my male and female today or tomorrow morning and post them. 2 males and 1 female is my guess also.
