I'm not good at sexing young birds. :(

Usually by about 5 weeks the boys have a more noticeable redness to their headgear, though X-breeds & Silkies in particular are harder to sex.

The Cream Legbars are sex-linked so you should have been able to sex them at hatching.

Maybe others will have a better idea?
