    My barred rock is approx 17 weeks old, purchased from TSC. Because of the red comb and waddles I wasn't sure if it's a he or she. It's hatch mate is much lighter in the comb and waddles as you can see in pic #3.

    The porcelain is approx 16 weeks (not really sure, got it from a swap). I was told that it was a he, but has never crowed.

    The Barred Rock is 100% girl. She should start laying soon, judging by her big red comb and wattles!

    The Porcelain looks like a rooster. He may take a few more weeks to start crowing. [​IMG]

    Your BR is a pullet. The D'Uccle looks like a cockerel.

    The first one looks like a girl... If she was a roo, she would have sickle feathers by now.
    Not so sure about the second one.
