    Here we go again... [​IMG]

    I just traded my 2 boys for these 2 babies yesterday. I was told they were both girls, but someone in another thread feels that Brownie is a boy! Please help! [​IMG]

    Brownie and Daisy are red cochin/mille fleur d'uccle mixes. They are approximately 7 weeks old. Brownie is slightly larger than Daisy. The lady said she may be a week older than Daisy. Both girls feel much smaller and more delicate than the boys that I returned, who were about the same age. The boys were much bigger than these two, and had huge red combs already. They, too, were cochin/mille fleur mixes. What do you think??

    Neither one looks particularly masculine to me. Their combs both look pretty flesh-colored to me. I'm gonna say pullets.

    By seven weeks you'd definately know if you had a boy - the comb would be prominately larger than the pullet....

    Both girls, but the look like pure bred D'Uccles. I don't see any Cochin resemblance whatsoever?
