    This is my 3 week old D'Uccle, Cutie.

    What are the chances of being a girl? By what age can you tell?

    I could tell at three weeks because all of a sudden my little guy was sporting a red comb bigger than the six week old girls had. With how dark that is, I'd say boy. My seven week old girls' combs are barely pink if there's color to them at all, definitely not red.

    I had a feeling that might be the case. No fair! He is such a sweetheart. At least the breeder will take him back, but he is ok here for a few more weeks
