These chicks are seven weeks old. I hatched them. I'm trying to decide which are hens and which are roosters. Any ideas?

It's hard to see in the pictures, but at that age you should be able to start to look at their saddle feathers. If they are skinny and pointed that one is most likely a cockerel. If they are larger and rounded it is most likely a pullet. There are always some exceptions, but it is decently accurate.
