D'uccles - help me find the roo!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi folks!

First time posting, I'm really new to chicken ownership! I just got a tiny flock of 3 d'uccles from a breeder...she hoped they were all girls, but this week, we have started to hear a crow. I haven't yet caught them in the act, so I'm not sure which one it is (or even which ones - two are much larger than the third...can she just be a runt? or that the telltale?) I live in the city, so a roo is a no no and the breeder is happy to swap, but which do you folks think? Thanks in advance for the help!

The blue bird and the solid red bird appear to be cockerels.  Single profile shots would help with gender ID.  The dark crested red bird is a pullet.

Definitely not d'Uccles (since these birds have crests), they appear to be some type of Silkie or Polish (possibly a d'Uccle) cross. I also agree with sourlands guesses on gender.

Do they have five toes?  They look like silky crosses.
