Sexing Sumatras?

    I have 5 or 6 Sumatras that I am having trouble sexing. I can guess that the roosters are larger & have thicker legs, but at this point, they are all looking nearly identical, except for one which had a difficult hatch and looks like a bantam (1/3) the size of the others. They were hatched in June. I can provide pics.....maybe I'll take some this weekend....
