    I hatched out four milli eggs and these were the chicks. They are now 4 weeks old and I am curious what you think, roo or pullet?

    I think 2, 3 and 4 are boys - they all have a comb developing. Only girl #1 has no visible comb growth yet.

    I hope you wanted some boys... 2 and 4 are boys and 3 is really looking like it, too.

    Looks like you have some boys. I had one d'uucle and he turned out to be a boy.
    here he is at about your little guys age:

    and then just a week or two later he looked like this:

    so if you cant tell now, in a few weeks it will be very obvious who is a roo

    D'Uccles are very tricky to tell the gender. I have been fooled twice with ones we have had, thinking they were cockerels when they were hens. I wouldn't dare try to guess here on yours.
