    We also have 5 porcaline chicks (around 5-6 weeks old) and it looks as if we have 2 gorls and 3 boys, we hope to eventually pair the girls with Pootle so i have a porcaline breeding trio!

    aaawwww how sweet. Your baby mille girls will carry the porcelain gene but not show it...their offspring will. [​IMG]

    Your 2 mille girls will be what is called splits...meaning they carry both...mille and porcelain so you would most likely get a split of mille and porcelain babies from them.

    I am new to D'uccles myself and just learned this info...
