    Way too young for anything but a random guess, wait a month or so.

    Do you only have 1 or few chicks?

    From what I know, it is easier to tell gender on very young serama by observing their behaviour. A Roo is more aggresive and likes to 'fight play'. If you have 2 roo, they are usually the most often chicks that 'fight play'

    Pullets "fight play" too, just as much as little cockerels, in my experience.

    I agree, they're too young to tell.
