    I have almost 2 week old chicks. I ordered 18 and 5 of those were straight run. Anxious to see if I have a ROO![​IMG]

    Depending on how fast the particular breed develops, you may be able to tell around 8 weeks or so. You may start noticing redder and larger combs on males as the first signs.
