To early to guarentee, better pictures would be nice, what breeds? I am assuming Easter Egger, Barred Plymouth Rocks and Rhode island or sex links of some sort? Feedstore birds right?

Then yeah, its a bit early to guarentee, though on the Barred rocks there are some little hints such as a hawk or eagle shaped face, bright yellow legs and beaks and large white dots on the head

They are too young to sex with the possible exception of the Barred Rock chicks and even then it's iffy. A small (compared to the larger one of the males) white spot on the top of the head and black wash on the legs is usually an indicator of a pullet, but only 80% of the time is it an accurate indicator of gender. When your Barred Rock chicks fully feather out the females will have dark barring and the males will have lighter barring. I would suggest re-posting their pics in a couple of months. By then your chicks gender should be pretty obvious.

Yep, too early. The comb size could be an indicator of cockerel but it's just too early to say with any certainty. If you have any cockerels, their combs will redden up within the next couple of months.

Yes two weeks is too early.
