    I've got 4 chicks I hatched from my friend's pair of Mille Fleur d'Uccles, i was wondering if you can tell them apart, male/female by coloring? i've got 2 that the feathers are growing in dark, like dad, and 2 that have the light feathers growing in like mom.. i've never had these before, so i was just wondering! [​IMG] i can't find them on the breeds index either. [​IMG]

    Im certainly no expert on this [​IMG] but I don't believe this isnt possible. From my understanding, Mille Fleurs don't get their full coloring in until after their first molt. I think the only way to tell is vent sexing at birth, or wait until the usual signs. Again, I'm no expert [​IMG].

    Enjoy your little d'Uccles.

    I have three and out of the 23 chickens I have, the d'Uccles are BY FAR my most favorite!

    Now I wish I had more.
