Hello... would love to know if anyone can tell us if we have boys or girls on our hands... hopefully you can see by these pics. We have 2 (perhaps) black mottles and a lavender mottle (who seems to have smaller or less developed feathers on her/his feet) if that’s any help in determining gender? Thanks in advance
My d'Uccle chicks are developing deeper colored combs at three to four weeks of age, and they are the cockerels. Occasionally a cockerel will develop a little slower, but usually it's possible to tell by four weeks, by the combs at least.
If you only have boys, you'll be confused longer!
From what I could see, you do have some cockerels.
