    It won't be long before you have a pretty good idea. Looks like yours are about 7 or 8 weeks old. In another two or three weeks the snoods should start developing on the males. But some can fool you. I think I have all mine figured out this year (14 weeks). But at 12 I was still flip floppping on a couple. At ten weeks I was sure I had three bourbon red toms. At 12 weeks I was sure I had one toms and one hen and one maybe hen. Now I'm sure I have one tom and two hens. Can't wait to see what I have at 16 weeks [​IMG]

    Just wanted to mention that hens will display too, so that isn't an indication on sex.
