    Ok I know it's still WAYYYY to Young to tell but as there is practically NO mottled Houdan Gender checks I wanted to create a thread for it, not so much for me although yes I'd like to find out what mine is when it's old enough but more for others stumbling on this thread in a few months or years :)
    Please feel free to add pictures of your houdans at various ages to help :)
    I only have one so I won't be too much help but here is "Cordon Bleu" (named after Corbin blue from his afro days) but we just call "her" Bleu

    Week 8 update!
    Eyes are gone! Poof is still growing in all directions, still no red. Definitely getting more mottled! I'm leaning towards hen *fingers crossed*

    Sad news aside I have 2 more mottled Houdans to continue the thread, hoping this will help someone down the road!
    These two are freshly hatched as of this morning!

    I am so sorry!
    I hope your new babies will turn out to be pullets.
