You should get some idea of gender by the time they are 6 weeks old, sometimes earlier, sometimes later. But you won't know for sure until they crow or lay an egg. If you post a picture in the "What Breed or Gender Is This" section of your chick(s) in a couple weeks then the members here will be able to take some guesses at it.
