I don't even try anymore. I figure it out when our silkies are near adulthood so about 6 months in. The best advice I can offer is you go by who is putting on weight the fastest. Behavioral clues help too when you see em sparring and flaring the hackles. Crowing is a good sign of who is what too. My hens top out at 1 pound and cocks are about 1.5 pounds. They do grow spurs eventually but even my 2 year olds don't really have much there to see.
