    Too young. No crested variety should be sexed based on hats at such a young stage.

    Agreed with Illia, wait 2 to 3 weeks and post again, and they are GORGEOUS! [​IMG] Glad to see another person who likes the breed

    I got hatching eggs from a woman in NY. Excellent hatch rate, I think 4 of 6! I did not find her on BYC though

    I love the Houdan breed! Too bad they're so hard to find. I lost my Houdan Roo months ago and still have no luck in finding another. My hens are lonely!
