    This is my porcelain d'uccle, Portia, cuz she's pretty like Portia DiRossi. She's 2 months old, and I want to verify that she's a she.

    Is she a Portia or a Pablo?

    Definitely a girl. My six week old D'Uccle roo has had a red comb and wattles for a couple of weeks, and just started "crowing" - I use the word loosely - this morning. You'd know if yours was a boy.

    sfw2- HAHA! My D'Uccle Roo insists on hanging with the full size roos. I know what you mean about the "crow." Even at 2+ years, ours can still stop midcrow if one of the bigger roos gives him a dirty look. Then he'll hop up on something tall & spindly before he sings again. NUTZ!

    Hey, you're in Placerville! I'm in Somerset. (waves hi to the "neighbor").

    Thank you all for the confirmation. She has a very "girlie" personality, too. When the cockerels in the growout pen start chest butting, she looks at them like they're nuts.

    I had to ask to be sure, since I'm getting Portia a boyfriend this weekend and want to make sure I didn't need to get a "girlfriend for Pablo" instead. [​IMG]

    She looks like my hen Prissy, as she gets older her comb will grow a bit and get red around laying time. My roo Beelzebub is a mean little stinker so be aware, they can be fiesty.
