Cutie patooties!  Hard to tell at their current age.  Is the chick in picture #5 really beginning to pink up in the comb or is that lighting?  If it's turning pink already it may be a Roo.

You're welcome!  Here is a brief thread where people are discussing when d'Uccles get pink in the comb and there's pictures!

They're too young to sex. I would post new photos when they're at least 6-8 weeks old.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Chick five is 100% male, but I do not know about the rest. D'uccles and Silkies have always been the hardest for me to sex.
