    Im sorry, i cant really tell wether those chicks are either. But if your chicks are one week old and you want to determine the sex of your chick, you need to find the tail feathers. The tail feathers is a sign that it is a hen an the first two weeks of age, if there is no tail feathers at that age it is a roo. Sounds crazy, i know but trust me its true.

    Maybe if you post pics when your chicks are 6-7 weeks old on the "what gender / breed is this?" forum members will be able to answer your question.
