It would be pretty hard to tell at one week. You could post some pictures and we could try to guess, though!
 
I think with the majority of breeds, it takes more than a week unless you feather or vent sex them. The only breed out of those that I am familiar with is cochins and I could sometimes sex them around 2-3 weeks, but my guess was not always right.

Barred rocks you can tell as day olds by the dot or splotch on their heads.
