    I think they are to young to tell sex where did you get them?

    They are looking rooish to me... some full body shots would help (as will time).

    some breeds look boyish at some point even if they are girls, so just wait and see

    At this point, it's pretty much pure conjecture. Several are showing early comb development but not significant enough to say absolutely ROOSTER!

    Chick 3 and 4 are the ONLY possible boys in there, I say.

    At this age I'd also look at leg thickness, full body shots would be nice.
