I have 2 Amber Whites that are approximately 10 weeks old...I'm trying to figure out their sex. They both have distinctly different tailfeathers...one has two longer feathers that stick out and the other has more of a "V" shape. I will try to get pics up later today!

Two long feathers sticking out is most likely a cockerel. Are they curved or straight? Curved = cockerel.

However, by this time you should be able to sex by combs. I believe Amber Whites have White Leghorn in them. If so, the males should be pretty obvious when you look at combs. Does this photo help? Two white birds in the middle--male on the left, female on the right. Both are White Leghorn.

I agree with WoS--if the only difference is tail feathers at this age, they're the same gender. Probably female.
