    Really only a week and a half old? Looks like a lot of wing feathers for that young. Also the comb seems big for that age as well. I think you may need to recheck the age if you got it in a store. That chick looks more like a month old.

    That chick has got to be about 3 weeks old hun. I have d'uccles that are just a bit older and a bit more feathered out.

    I say its a girl, I do not see any waddles coming in with the comb, and not dark pink color either just the peachy pink and d'uccles you can tend to tell gender for sure by 4 weeks.

    He was at least a week old when you got him, maybe closer to 10 days than 7.

    I'm thinking roo, but its a little early to be certain.

    oh wow. i really hope you're wrong in the roo factor but if she really is more like 3 weeks than I suppose she can be introduced to our 5 week olds soon...
