Pros: Laid back
Cons: Can't think of a one
Oh, I LOVE my Mille Fleur d'Uccles! We have one hen and one cock. We had another hen but a raven came out of nowhere and snatched her up out of the yard last year. =(
Both the hen and the cock are relatively easy to catch and struggle only initially when held. The cock doesn't crow excessively like our Golden Sebright cock but when he does, it's a less strident sound. As far as aggressiveness goes, he only postures once or twice a month. The rest of the time, he couldn't care less if a human comes near him. My friend once said he looks like he's wearing fancy shoes; those feathered feet are so cute! They do make it a little difficult for the d'Uccles to get around in tall grass or the snow, though.
Our hen is my favorite of all our birds. She's just so sweet and unassuming. She lays small, white, very tasty eggs when she's not being broody and when she is broody it doesn't take too much work to break her of it. Maybe just a week or so of pulling her out of the nest and putting her outside. We have invested this year in Dorkings to breed (for meat and eggs) and I plan on using my little d'Uccle to brood eggs if a Dorking girl decides she's not up to the task.
I highly recommend d'Uccles as pets!
