    I would say, boy-girl-girl on the d'uccles.

    I'm not sure about the polish. The puff looks a little uneven to me, which would indicate a roo but then again it's not that old either. So, it could be a girl. [​IMG]

    5 weeks... a bit early but I guess roo, hen, roo... and that polish has more time to wait. Round ball crest= female, pointyer one = male, however you have to wait to see as they mature on that one.
