    Hey Guys, I got these 6 little guys out of the assorted bantam bin. I was hoping one was a d'anvers as I got one a few years ago but I think it is a Gold Laced Sebright. The other 5 I am guessing d'uccle and possibly Mille Fleur though the white is only prominent on a couple of them. Anyways they are now about 3 weeks old and I thought we could try a gender guessing game? Doesn't matter (the roos I will have to find homes for if the people I am raising them for don't want roos) but would be helpful to have guesses [​IMG]

    Here we go!

    Single combs, featherd shanks and toes, black and gold.... Gold Laced Cochins. #1 looked like a rose comb and I think Clean leged so maybe a gold sebright... and #2 looked like it had muffs and a beard and stumped me.

    I agree with you. 1 looks like a golden sebright and 2-6 are millie fluer d'uccles. I love love love d'uccles. The heavily feathered feet don't lie. I think they look like little snow shoes. [​IMG]

    Edited to add: give it another week. My d'uccle was the first of my 10 that I absolutely KNEW was a boy. It is kinda hard to see in your pics but if they have a reddening in their comb OR wattle, it's a boy. I knew at week four, over night it was like, BAM, red comb and wattle.

    #1 is a golden Seabright...

    The rest are Mille Fleur D'uccles 100% sure. white and black come in varying degrees on each chick, and white tends to not develop much until 7+ weeks. [​IMG]

    Agreed, wait till week 4 you will start to notice a big difference, d'uccles boys and girls get in in decent combs by then but around week 4, no later than 5 the boys will have a good red tint to their combs and develop the red to the waddle area (d'uccles dont get much of any waddles, but will color up as chicks)

    Awesome! When I first picked them up they all had muffs but as they are growing (as you can see) some have muffs and some are w/o their muffs now! I will post update pics in a week or so! I was amazed at the amount of white already on one of the babies ! My camera died last night or I would have tried for better pictures
