    Too young to tell at this age. Watch for comb development. Since you have two, you should see a difference, that is, if they are opposite sex. Males will get redder and larger than females. Males tend to develop thicker legs also.

    I can't really tell. I agree with MrsBachBach wait until their owner but if they both get red combs don't freak out because that's not always a definite characteristic of chicks

    At bit too young to tell. If those combs really redden up in the next few weeks, you probably have some roosters.
