Different breeds mature differently, and birds within breeds mature differently - just like people.

Also with -  in  the same breed  males generally develop slower - which can be a clue to their gender  but, not 100% accurate. hen you chicks are 6-8 weeks old you can post photos of them  at  "what breed or gender is this."
