Typically the first sign is leg thickness, the males develop a much heavier leg than the females, this can ussually be noticed in the 4-5 week time frame, the wattles of the males will begin to develop more in the 8-10 week timeline some breeder lines are slower than others though so hang in there.

Pauls poultry has them... and Duane Urch also. I've emailed duane and he's very nice. The Foleys are going to have them next year I think to! And they are great at answering emails and PMs.
