    Usually will see some dark spots starting on the breast at about 6-7 weeks.

    mine are ten weeks now but at 4 or 5 weeks look around the eyethe feathers will start to thin and bronze colore feathers will begin showing up more and more daily around 6 weeks you should be able to tell i band mine at 5 weeks and all of my sexing was right i put different bands on males and females and none had to be switched so i'd say about 5 weeks if you know what to look for.
