How do I sex three week old Bantam Chicks?

I have 5 chicks that i hatched out. They were all born within three days but one of the chicks has a smaller feather growth. This is the chick that i had to help out of the egg. Initially thought this meant it was a boy but then two of the other chicks were showing growth on their nose thing. Is there anyway to tell if they are male or female? My city won't allow roo's in the city limits where I live. So I need to know soon! Also, would pictures help you tell?

Three weeks old is much to early to tell for bantams. Even most hatcheries don't sell sexed bantams, and the ones that do don't guarantee anything and are pretty much liars. Sorry :(

However, you should definitely post pics! Some bantam breeds are easier to sex than others, and its always worth giving it a shot!
