    This is one of three of our new babies. I fell in love with this breed everytime I saw a picture of them here so I ordered eggs. One is more black than the other two so it made me wonder if you can sex them as chicks or will I be waiting.

    Thanks for all the input. I thought the 21 days was long now two weeks to see if I get a hen!

    It's too young to sex. In a few weeks, it will get comb development if it's a male. Also, mille fleur is the pattern, not the breed. The breed is d'uccle [​IMG]

    Your Avatar started the whole process so I am glad you get to see. I am hooked. So what is the correct way to identify this breed. is it d'uccle Mille Fleur? I am going to have them for a while so I better get it right.

    Here are all three together no I am zooming in to see if I can tell and I think one cockerel then I think maybe two but I will keep one cockerel and find a good home for the others if I don't get a hen and try again.

    [​IMG] It's Mille Fleur d'Uccle. Just like Buff Orpington or White Leghorn, etc. Millie Fleur is the color. It means "thousand flowers" in French.

    BTW: They are adorable!

    so how's the baby looking? boy or girl? I have 2 day old Mille, Fleur D'uccles and am wondering what they may be. Was wondering if you could tell by color. ONe has 2 stripes down it's back... and yes, they are purebred. We got a MF D'uccle rooster for our hens and hatched some eggs. I cannot upload pictures right now, but as soon as I can, I will share them.

    So far only 2 have hatched, but 4 more may still come around.. they were put under my broody 5-6 days later.

    is there any bit of a comb on the newly hatched girls?

    I have had cross breed D'uccles before as chicks, but never the real deal.
