It can depend on the breed but at four weeks our Buffy Pekins were easily distinguished. By just two weeks the roosters had a marked red line of comb showing while the hens had none. As well the young boys were significantly bigger and more assertive even at that young age.

Otherwise do you know a reputable chick sexer? There's some can do it with almost 100% accuracy in the first week.
