    I have just acquired these 3 week old d'uccles. Any idea what sex they are? I know it's early but just thought I'd ask.

    The top one could be a pullet, but the second one looks like a cockerel with that large a comb.

    The second is a cockerel. The first, seeing other shots would help. It has a bigger comb than out pullet does even now at barely 6 mo but the other D'uccles I picked from had color in the obvious cockerels at 2 weeks when I got her. See how the bottom one has a slight pink tinge already? Definitely post body shots of that one and watch it!!

    It looks like the second bird is a cockerel, but the first may be a pullet.
