    Any thoughts on roo or hen... I know silkies are tough but thought I would post and give it a shot. They are 4 -5 weeks old. Bantam d'uccle ( thought it was cochin but once someone told me about d'uccle, we looked up chicks and that is what it looks like) and white silkie

    you sure thats a cochin...looks more like a mille fluer d'uccle, beard, feathered legs, and should have vulture hocks as well if its a d'uccle....to early to tell gender wait till at least 6 weeks, although d'uccles can be sexed at 3.5 weeks of age if it is one

    How would you sex a d'uccle... it was found in a bin at TSC and was thought to be a bantam cochin.
    Thanks for the thought and would love to hear sexing ideas...
