Hi, Pekin chicks are usually fairly easy to sex early on. The roosters by that age should have a redder comb and the start of wattles. Hens combs stay very small and pale. Roosters also tend to take longer to feather out than the pullets but that can sometimes be more noticeable if you are able to watch them from the time they hatch.
