    This blue baby has been dubbed Dovey. I'm just not 100% sure of the breed.

    Maybe a blue self duccle? What is the comb type? It looks like a boy though, how old is he?

    Four weeks. The comb looks to be a single comb.

    Yes, at 4 weeks with a comb already pinking up, 100% cockerel. Duccle boys seem to show themselves pretty early [​IMG]

    or maybe lavender? Ha! Listen I admit to playing the odds here. Porcelain is pretty common.

    I thought male at first but the comb's color was covered by another chick's butt. So a pullet I think.

    As far as I know there aren't any lavender duccles, not found at hatcheries anyway! He doesn't look like a porcelain either, here's a pic of my porcelain duccle chick. [​IMG]
