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.

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

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.
