Males and females of the brown, golden, or cinnamon varieties can be sexed around 3-4 weeks old by the presence (for females) or lack of (for males) spotted breast feathers. Any other color has to be vent sexed. The link posted above shows pictures of what to look for as far as sexing a 'mature' male/female, but quaillady's site ( www.stellargamebirds.com ) also shows pictures of what the vent is supposed to look like for each sex so you can check them much earlier or when they are not 'in season'.
