    Visually, you cannot tell their sex at this age. If you bought them at a feed store, they likely got them from a hatchery that vent sexes them, which I am told is about 95% accurate. Unless you were stuck with the 5%, then they are all pullets. If you got a rooster in there, you can't tell until they are older :).
