Sometimes the hatcheries will put a little spot of paint on the little roo's heads.....Did you see any?

Congratulations on your new chicks!
I don't have a ton of experience with this and I'm sure that someone will come along with a much more concrete answer, but I think that you may not be able to tell until they are older. Unless the hatchery put a paint mark on their head. I've seen that done before. You may have to just split them up, raise them and then if you find that one of you has all the roosters, switch them up. Again, I hope that someone else has a more productive answer for you. Have fun loving those little babies!
