just like goldens, a good eye can sex them all at a day old, though by a week or so anyone can tell. With all ruffed species, the hens will have brown eyes, they males will have white/yellow rings around them that gradually spread over the whole eye, same with the goldens

Here's some pics of day old and a 1month old male Golden and day old female Golden
You can see the "tear drop" or wattle very easily if you have good vision. Females will not have the bare spot like the males do!

Same holds true for Lady Amherst chicks.
No chicks were harmed in photographing. They just momentarily were asleep!
