Can anyone tell me how to sex a chicken by looks?

I'd like to know what to look for when I buy another chicken, probably another White Leghorn. What are some key features to look for as far as genders?
oh, probably either 2-5 weeks or 3-4 months. my Leghorn is 3 months, and I had no idea how to tell if she was female, I had to ask in another thread. If I want another chicken, I probably need to know how to visually sex them.
Adults you can tell by the hackle and saddle feathers. For white birds, spread the feathers out over a dark surface--males will have pointed feathers and females will have rounded feathers. Chicks you tell primarily by comb size--large red combs at young ages mean roosters, small yellow combs mean pullets.
