Default Are these babies too young to be sexed?

]These two babies are approximately 16 days old. Can anyone tell if they are males or females or is it just too soon?

Thanks

Look like maybe a male and a female, hard to tell since the other one's cere is a little blurry.
It's not too soon, but some chicks are easier to sex at a young age than others, it depends. Do you have any other pictures of them?
They're precious

Thank you for looking.

I have only got this one photo which the breeder sent me. The father is I believe a normal blue and the mother is a grey cinnamon - all three babies look to be grey.

I thought perhaps the one on the left may be a male. I'm going to visit them in another couple of weeks, so will try and take some pics then.

There are two other chicks from another clutch which I shall be looking at too - apparently the oldest one is yellow and black with a small amount of green on the tummy - and the youngest baby is only 10 days old with some yellow and black on head and wings. Here is a pic of the oldest chick at about the same age. Not sure whether this is male or female either.

The ceres on these little chicks will go through a lot of changes, it will be much easier to tell when they reach 4 weeks of age.
At this point it is still soon to give an accurate guess on gender through photos.
