Porcelain d'Uccle Bantam


Pros: Very pretty, sweet, fun.

Cons: Small, so can easily get taken out by a predator

I love my porcelain d'Uccle chick. I just got it two weeks ago along with some others. I have no complaints about them. They are an awesome breed! They are very pretty and cute. I'm not sure if it's a female or male, but either way it is staying. The roosters are gorgeous! I'm hoping for a female so I can watch it hatch and raise baby chicks for me. I'm definitely going to be getting some more, but for now here's a pic. of the one I currently have.


We have had several flocks of my favorite chicken, Porcelain D'uccle.

Very sweet and gentle. I have however had a few experiences with weakness in chicks and ultimately loosing them.

Seems they may be hard to raise?

Porcelain d'Uccle Bantam

The Porcelain d'Uccle Bantam is realated to the Millle Fleur d'Uccle Bantam and the Belgain d'Uccle Bantam. It was introduced in the U.S in 1965, though its popularity is very small. The Porcelain d'Uccle is a true bantam breed. They have full beards and feathered feet. They are not a cold hardy breed and do better in free ranging situations. This breed is broody and makes a great mom for hatching eggs. This breed is very docile and have great personalities, they also are a great show bird and have known to make 1st prize.
