    the porcilein is feathering in faster than the mille but its comb is also larger...i'm going to say that you cant tell gender by how they feather out...so hoping for 2 pullets

    It is a bit early, but I don't see anything yet that would indicate roo-ness.

    I DO however, see a whooooooooole lot of signs of CUTE! [​IMG] [​IMG] They look so soft!

    Yes, they are looking like pullets. [​IMG] I'm not familiar with d'Uccles, but I would think at 4 weeks you'd see more comb development and/or more color in the combs for cockerels.

    i also think you would see more color and bigger combs as well. i winged sexed them and by that they are supposidly pullets and so far that looks to be correct
