    Hi, you might find it hard to sex them at the moment. Normally I find 6/8 weeks is easier to sex chicks. Just look at combs and wattles the boys with grow larger and be more red than the girls. Hope this helps :)

    It is difficult to sex at this age, particularly if you don't have a flock of the same breed to compare them to. Post some pictures and some of our more experienced members may have an opinion.
