Need help sexing New Hampshire pullets and cockerels

I have new hampshire red chicks that are a week over 2 months old and I can't tell the difference between hens and roosters. HELP ME PLEASE YALL


MEG: IT DOES GET HARD TO SEX A LOT OF BREEDS AROUND THAT AGE. BEFORE THEN YOU CAN USUALLY TELL DUE TO DIFFERENCES IN THE FEATHERING COVERAGE. BOYS ARE NORMALLY A BIT TALLER, AND HAVE THICKER SHINS BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT TILL THEY START TO CROW!

look at the legs of the day old chicks. The thick leg means male and the thin one is the female.
