    Please excuse the red clay. They love to dust bathe in moist dirt.

    that D'uccles gotta be a roo, see my d'uccle in my avatar, it was taken when she was the same age and the comb was nowhere near that big or red. Still isn't!

    Agree that the d'uccle is def. a cockerel. The silky is too hard to tell...does it have streamers?? My gut says cockerel just based on the amount of red that I see so far on the comb - but that def. would be a guess only...
