    Well were not sure what Lucky is...we think boy [​IMG] So if he's a boy he's gotta go to a new home...

    I would say so. It is still early, especially for a V combed bird, but it looks like you've got a cockerel there.

    [​IMG] Thought so - Looks like Lucky needs to be called Unlucky...

    I also have 4 mottled Houdan chicks that have a great difference in their hats. Some are much taller and more cylindrical while the others are lower to the head, more rounded. Any suggestions if this is suggestive of sex or just coincidence? New to Houdans!

    I'm pretty sure the more rounded top hats means girls, and the more spiky ones means boys. Please post pics! [​IMG]
