When can you tell color and sex of brahmas?

So we hatched out two chicks from blue partridge Brahma eggs. I’m very curious what colors/sex these may possibly be. We have never had partridge Brahma chicks so no idea what colors were looking at or when we can get an idea. Opinions? Tips?

Way too young for sex guessing, but color may be determined but sometimes not. I’m not good at color, so I can’t guess, but we can wait for experts! ;) @LadiesAndJane
Thanks for the tag! I am by no means an expert, especially in Brahmas. Blue Partridge appears to be a fairly new color in the US but well known in Europe. Papa’s Poultry among others carries them. They follow other BBS genetics so your chicks will come out as black, blue or splash. From what I can tell in your photos looks like you have one blue and one splash. Agree that it is too early to tell gender! Please keep us posted on their development. They are very interesting and beautiful looking!😊

I was hoping one blue at least. Lol and I figured splash for the other one when o started seeing new colors. I mixed up the photos though so here are 5-6 week old pics. Not much better I know lol but here’s fingers crossed. Lol. The one I think is blue throws me for a loop though. Because those feathers coming in don’t look like our blue partridge roo and can we really be so lucky as to get a hen when we wanted one? Lol.
