    I just bought 2 young mille fleurs D'uccle, thinking it was a male and a female. The young gentleman told me that the one with the smallest comb was a female. So ive had them now for a few days, the cockerel is always cocododeling and the other one was always quiete until this morning when she decided to cocododledoo herself!! Does this mean its a male?? (I'm new with the D'uccle world) Thanks.

    Both sexes have single combs, pullets/ hens just generally have smaller combs than cockerels/ roosters of the same age. Individuals mature at different rates though, so you can also have two cockerels with very different comb sizes that are the same age. It sounds like you have two males. You might try posting pictures on the What Breed or Gender is This board and people can help figure out what you have.
