    Hi all. First post here! I'm after some opinions on the gender of my 3 latest babies. They are ridiculously energetic and difficult to photograph so I hope these are good enough!!
    I have a 6 week old black pekin
    4-5 week old Mille fleur belgian d'uccle
    And a 4-5 week old orpington? Cuckoo

    D'uccle looks like a roo and the cochin looks like a hen, the other may be a hen but not sure

    Thanks. I suspected our little belgian would be a roo. Has a bit of attitude to my big girls when they dare to approach the little kids coop. The comb is quite pink!!

    Bantam roosters are hilarious, they think they are really tough but they are tiny cute little guys

    They all look like pullets to me for now, except the D'Uccle.

    The D'Uccle looks like the only cockerel to me.

    The D'Uccle still looks like a cockerel.
