Still a little early to be sure. Red and white feathers can be more misleading, so black and blue are the best to look out for. They generally take about 4-5 weeks to tell (For feather-sexable varieties), but I had one who was an obvious male at a week and a half old! On the other hand though, his brother (or sister?) didn't start getting male colouring until seven months old!
