Different breed are sexed in different ways. The sexlinks can be identified by color. Others the length of their wing feathers/fluff. Staggered lengths are males I beleive. Others have to be vent sexed, males have a bump in their vent. Maybe post some pics and others can help further.

if you're trying to sex day olds, probably only thing to do is vent sex. I'm not a huge chicken raiser, just quails. But i would think you wuoldn't really be able to tell at a day old

I was incorrect on the feather thing, stagered are females. Here are a couple of videos on the subject.
