    Hey! I have a few D'uccle chicks at 6 weeks (I have 6). All but one of them are mille fluer and can clearly be comb sexed, but my one porcelain I'm not sure about. Thanks for any help!

    And I'm going to put in pic of my mille fleurs for good measure

    I'm betting rooster because of the size of the comb but it's still alot paler and smaller than the millie roosters.
    Thanks!
    P.S sorry for misspelling it in the title, auto-correct got me!

    Cute, one of my favorite breeds, it's definitely a little rooster, I adore mine but they are getting old. My avatar is one of my trio of roosters when they were younger.

    I ordered mine but 2 of the three porcelain chicks they gave me were sickly and died.... so if this one is a rooster I guess I'm gonna have to order more [​IMG]

    Can't have too many in my opinion, especially since they are pigeon sized.
