    I have 3 bantys. This is our first time having bantams. They are all 7 weeks old. Guesses on pullets/cockerels? Thanks in advance everyone!

    7 Week Old Gold Laced Sebright (Porkchop - husband named this one):

    7 Week Old Mille Fleur D'Uccle (Surrey, short for Survivor - battling wry neck, splay leg and broken wing. Was a farm store freebie to nurse back to health so a bit growth delayed):

    Sebright looks like a pullet, porcelain d'uccle definitely a roo, and the mile fleur d'uccle looks like a pullet to me.

    Glad you were able to nurse the little mille fleur back to health! They're such fun little chickens.

    Thanks @ChickenHermit . We thought the porcelain was a pullet, but in the last week some wattles and reddening showed up. :-( He is a nice little bird so will will keep him. Hopefully he stays sweet. The little mille still has some issues. Her legs still aren't quite right and her neck is a bit twisted. We are still giving vitamins. She gets around and eats well. So I am hopeful she is a pullet since she has a forever home here with everything she has been through.

    My D'Uccles have been sweet pretty much across the board, including the roos. Hopefully he'll stay non-aggressive!

    She really does look like a pullet to me. My d'uccles are the same age, and I'm seeing a similar large difference between boys vs. girls on comb size/color and wattles.
