    well, i bought a belgian from my local petstore, and i'm not too sure if it's a boy or a girl. she was in the cage with another from the same clutch, and the other one had a larger comb, so i assumed it was a girl, but now i'm skeptical.

    Most definately a male, though.

    Quote:Actually it is a Belgian d'Uccle. There are also Belgian booteds (no muffs and beards) and Belgain d'Anvers (muffs and beards, no feathered legs)


    And to the OP, I replied in the other again, after you posted the new pics.
