    Any thoughts on these little cuties? D'uccles are 5-6 weeks, silkie is 11 weeks and the BR is 9 weeks. I appreciate your help / guidance.

    First d'Uccle is a hen - small yellow comb and nice rounded hen look, second one is a roo - red combs at this age is a huge flag for this breed and he's also got a more sleek rooish look all around and silkie looks roo to me too because he has that sleeker roo look and I see tail streamerssss.. he's also holding his head and chest in a very rooish manner

    Edited to add some more helpful reasoning~
