As soon as they start to feather in. The males have solid black/blue breast feathers and the hens are fawn/tan colored.

As soon as the wings come in. wink

Males have solid blue/black wing feathers, or at least mostly colored, and females have pale creamy brown wing feathers.

Then, after that, the breast feathers will confirm it with either a pale whitish coloring, a brown coloring, or a male would have a lot of blue or black.

I thought about 8 weeks. All my wheatons and bw s were same colors till the males started changing to adult feathers at 8 weeks.
