    I'm not sure how old these little ones are. I was told they were two weeks when I got them. That was a month ago. I think they are about two months now. I think they are a pair of roos my son says a boy and a girl. I have Polish so I'm not used to looking at combs. Chick one is always on the right side and Chick two is always on the left. These I'm ok either way. If it's two roos I have a home for one already ... but a pair would be nice.

    I have 2 7 week olds and 1 is definitely a roo and the other still has a very tiny yellow comb, so my guess for yours is 2 roos.

    Pair of roos, sorry [​IMG] The combs on both of them are /huge/ and they both have that sleek rooster look.

    I thought so. We started with four and lost the two girls from an unknown disease. They were much smaller than these two. Thanks for confirming. We have to decide now which little guy to keep.

    Quote:Yeah it's not an easy decision. I'm still trying to decide between four MF roosters over here to replace my old roo as head of my flock. Personality I've found to be most important really as they all pattern out the samish. Which is beautiful [​IMG]

    Post this on the D'Uccle thread. I am not sure, there is something about the one on the left that says little girl to me. Both sexes of this breed get combs fast and my D'Duccle male has a much larger comb than yours. [​IMG] Don't give one away yet until you receive more responses!
