I have found hens tend to be the hisser's, males are quieter. A week old is very young though... it may be very difficult to tell.

I don't try until they are 3 weeks old. Some you can tell younger some older... some never.

The ceres are starting to get the pale/blue/white rings for hens and go darker pink for the males.

The cere of a hen will have nosstral rings and start to roughen slightly. A cock will be a soild colour and be smooth. Some varieties like Recessives and inos are dificult. I had a resessive that was 12 months old and still couldn't work it out.

What do you guys mean by rings I know they are all dominant babies beacuse both the parents are dominant. If possible can you post a a picture of the rings
