Hi mick
It would depend on how critical it is ,at around 10 days ( ringing time) if i have a mixed bag of mhh and fhh the difference is apparent ,as a judgement call for female i look for a deeper cere area, thicker tarsus,within 6 weeks its far easier just on leg thickness particularly alongside parents,by 12 weeks its rarely hard to differentiate

I breed my hh and reds in open fronted pens and always have
