    when you look at the chicks feet, which are yellow, the ones who have grey on the front fof them are females. if they are solid yellow, (even if just a hint of grey) they are male. You can also tell by the white spot on the top of the head, but I ususally sex by leg colour. Also, the feathering of the males will be slightly a lighter (greyish) colour. (as opposed to females black)

    Another week will give more details, but you're likely to have a couple roos there.

    The water color on the front of the legs is a good indicator, as is the over all feather tone. If it is more grey, it is a roo, of overall black, it is pullet. The pullets basically are dark with a smattering of white checks, while the male's are light and white is intense and larger bars.

    At 6-7 weeks, the roos will have a pink comb, while the pullets will remain yellow. It also does not take longer for the males to act out dominant behaviors.
