    One I know for sure is a cockerel, but the other one is iffy for me. Again, not hatchery stock. [​IMG] 2 1/2 weeks old.
    First Porcelain with a noticeably smaller and lighter comb than #2.

    #2 is already pinking up slightly, so cockerel.

    It is too early to be definite but I think your instincts are right, my guess would be girl and boy, but best to wait another couple of weeks, the boys will get pink combs really early.

    I would guess one cockerel and one pullet, but they're too young to be sure.

    Thank you all! [​IMG] As it turns out, I do have pullet and cockerel. Since these pictures were taken, it's become very obvious!

    I love my little d'uccle roosters, they are such goofs.

    I can see that! Although I won't be keeping my Porcelain boy, one or both of my Mille Fleur cockerels will be staying (provided they are kind to the girls and us). They are simply the friendliest in the bunch, and won't be denied lots of love and pets. [​IMG]

    It's hard to tell but it think you have a pullet and a cockerel.
