    These are my 4 week old chicks. Is there any way to tell at this age?

    Females have to different length rows of feathers, but males have the same length in both rows.

    Time will tell, it stinks having to wait but it's really all you can do. There are many ways you can try and find out the sex but none of them are 100%
