    Does anyone know the easiest way to sex these guys/gals? Their bodies are fully feathered and their crests are just starting to feather.

    Pictures would help.

    Pics do help. Generally (speaking from my experience) if the wattles and beak skin turn red before week seven or eight, it's a roo. If not, it's a hen. And very generally, a fuller and rounder crest means it's a hen, but this is not as reliable an indicator.
