This is our first time raising chicks and now 2 ducks and I purchased 25 straight run chicks and some sexed pullets. I mixed them all up (dumb thing to do now cuz I have no way to tell which is which at this point). How old until we should be able to tell? I know I am far off from that but we plan on culling the roos I dont want to bring my pullets to an early demise in error.

You should start to be able to tell by around four weeks, but most likely not until they are 5 or 6 weeks old. Sometimes it takes longer, but you should be able to get a general idea by then.
