    I can't tell the difference until they get much older. I don't think that there are any different sounds to determine sex.

    I wasn't able to tell via the sounds they made but I was able to tell by the differences in their bodies/legs/feet. Can you take some photos of them all together?
    I figured mine were 4 females and 2 males and turned out right thank goodness LOL
