    They're a little to young to tell, in a week or two they will make themselves very clear [​IMG]

    They are not 3 weeks yet, maybe 1.5- 2 weeks old.

    Here is my female mille fleur at 3 weeks old. :)

    They are way too cute. I agree a little early on the sex, three more weeks should do it. :thumbsup

    You'll know in about a week which sex is which. They grow fast! Sometimes the females trick you into thinking they are male. Keep an eye on the feathering too, the males will have different feathering soon.

    Muffin's spots were fully in by 8 months of age. Here she is at a year.(poor quality photos)

    D'uccles can be sexed at 3.5 weeks of age. That baby isnt 3 weeks yet :) the spots will come in as they mature and with each molt will get more white so dont worry to much if they dont have that much white at a year old.
