    Here they are, 9 days old. Any wisdom or fun guesses out there? I have a few ideas but really have no practical experience so some who are wiser will have better ideas. They were straight run and 3 definately did have earlier tailfeathers and pointy=er/more developed wing feathers. But I understand that's not a sure thing by any stretch.

    Thanks for looking and any suggestions you might have. It's my first time at posting a picture so please bear with me.

    This little one looked very chipmunk, s/he's super noisy.

    Number 2 s/he had pure black beak and feathered legs at 1 day but is starting to lighten up.

    Number 3 has feathered legs

    This s/he is really pretty, her wings seem to be coming in light blue... s/he's mean and we've taken to calling it the bullly.

    And last but not least, this s/he is heavy, over 2 oz makes it the heaviest..

    I agree that #5 is a porcelain d'Uccle. We have 4 our in our play house right now.

    Is she super sweet, like to be held and moves slowly - even stops so you can pick her up? Does she just stand there and let others peck her and then just look at them? Falls asleep in your hand? Then she is def. a d'Uccle. You will LOVE them.

    It never occurred to me to think d'uccle. I ordered 3 out of an order due to come this week in mille fleur but would be pleased as all get out to have another. I did notice that it started with a beard this afternoon. Yea!

    As for personality on day one when we brought them home we nicknamed this one the 'bully'. Since then it's calmed down and does get still when I hold him/her.

    Thank you for looking. It's like Christmas, love the wrapped present and then get to figure out what it is....
