    Unless they are sex-linked chicks or you are experienced at vent sexing, there is really no way to tell when they are so young. You have to wait and look for other signs as they get older.

    I'm assuming they are in such a small area just for picture taking. If not, they do need more space than that.

    Yup. You need a bigger box.
