Are these two Mille Fleur d'Uccles cockerels?

    I'm beginning to think two of my Mille Fleurs (and, ironically, my favorites) are cockerels because of the size of their combs at 2 1/2 weeks of age. Piranha is the first one, and whether he turns out to be a boy or not, I'm keeping him. These are not hatchery stock.

    I think it may be a bit early to call male on any of them. I do agree that is a lot of comb just not sure it is more then should be there at such a young age.

    You won't be disappointed! [​IMG] They're the friendliest in the bunch. In fact, you crush their dreams by either not letting them fly up on your arm or putting them down. [​IMG]

    I can't wait to see just how stunning they'll be when full grown......

    I agree with 21hens, some time is needed for an appropriate guess. Keep picture updates!

    Thank you both! [​IMG] You're right, it is pretty early. I guess I just got a little impatient in trying to figure out what I have, but only time will tell in this situation! Yes, I will keep updating.
