Default What gender based on genetics?


I am asking for a friend who would like to know the sex of her chicks!
The parents are..

Mom: Cinnamon, though they must be split to whiteface. Other splits unknown.

Father: Visual whiteface, unknown splits.

Chick 1: Cinnamon whiteface

Chick 2: Whiteface

Can the sex of the chicks be known based off of the parents? Thanks,

If the father isn't secretly split to cinnamon, then chick #1 is male. Chick #2 cannot be determined through parents mutation. Wait for it's first molt, or DNA sex it.

Dad must be split to cinnamon, since you can't get any cinnamon babies at all if he doesn't have the gene. We can't tell the sex of either chick - they could be male or female.
