Id have to say vent sexing on the baby chicks is the only way at that age on those breeds, however by around 5-6 weeks in most cases you can tell the roo's by there comb. They generally are a bit larger and more in red color than the hens.

couldnt say on the ducks

Last time I tried a surefire way of sexing day olds from an old wives tale I grew out 5 Roosters from 8 chicks.... Day olds are a toss up unless the bin says pullets
