    They are approx. 12 weeks old now. The Belgian behaves like a rooster...The porcelain behaves like a hen and is much smaller than the Belgian.

    I am pretty sure the Belgian D'Uccle is a roo. Still unsure of the Porcelain.

    You've got it backwards the Mille Fleur d'Uccle is a pullet and the Procelain Booted Bantam is a cockerel. [​IMG]

    Yep, I'm 100% positive. And they are different breeds as well, a Booted Bantam and a d'Uccle. d'Uccle's have no vissible wattles and have a bead/muffs while Booted Bantams have clean faces and large wattles.

    Now we can name them.
