    I'm pretty sure that my little Chuffy Cheeks is a Porcelain D'uccle. He or she is full of attitude. For such a little thing Chuffy thinks s(he) rules the world already. I love this little one regardless of whether it's a roo or a pullet. Just curious of whether it's a boy or girl. Chuffy is about 3 1/2 to 4 weeks old now.


    Chuffy is the buff colored chick in this pic.

    Chuffy is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle and it looks like a pullet at this point.

    Here is one I took of a ~5 week old MFD chick that is a cockerel. You can see the difference that leads me to believe yours is a pullet.

    I agree that you have a mille fleur d'uccle that is likely a pullet. Here is a pic of my boy at only 3 weeks...he already had a big red comb.[​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the replies and the help. [​IMG] I appreciate the pics showing the difference between the combs. She will be a coorful little addition to my growing flock. I hope she keeps her BIG personality.
