    I don't know a thing about that breed specifically, however... if I had them, I'd have to wait until they were about 14 weeks or so, and look for anybody who looked like this. Unless a had an obvious cockerel with the comb...

    Wait for the breast feathers to start coming in.
    Males breast will be black.
    Females will have a reddish colored breast.
