Had a hen hatch 7 chicks. How soon can I tell the difference in sexes? I am hoping that the roos will look different than hens early on.

Some roos will make themselves known pretty early, and others will be sneaky about it. I think by 8-12wks I knew pretty certainly what mine were.

seedcorn, I don't know if the bantams would be different from the LF?
I started having my suspicions when my chicks were about 4 -5 weeks old. By seven weeks I had the roosters picked out for sure. The only time it's different is with the dark brahmas, since the males feather out completely different from the females.
