Thanks for the input, Cherry! :D Is your Porcelain a pullet or cockerel?

These are my Mille Fleur d'uccle. The females is pretty chill. The roosters not so much, every time I walk outside and turn my back to them they run up on me and grab onto my legs. I am in the process of trying to find a new home for them, I don't want to get rid of them; but don't know how to stop the attacks. The roosters also grab my tiny dog on his back and peck at her. I did finally after having these for a year get a egg from my hen. How do I stop the mean behavior or it that their nature?

Alexandra, I'm looking at your thread a year later....what was the outcome, and do you have current pics?  

Thanks,

My goodness, this thread must've been SO buried! :lol: 

 

Long story short, both d'Uccles turned out to be adorable little cockerels. :) It actually took me almost a year to figure out "less developed" boy, a.k.a. Cooties, is indeed male. :rolleyes: What a stumper that stinker was! He never grew pointed saddle or hackle feathers, strange. 

 

Pictures! Sadly, Piranha became aggressive once maturity hit, therefore he's no longer with us. :( 

 

These are a couple of the last I took. 

That being said, I still have Cooties! :D He's an adorable little critter. :love

christinethemac, Very cute they are with their feathers growing in!    If you look at the OP's pics on p 1 of this thread, hers both had a lot of comb at 2 !/2 wks.   A lot more than yours.....I'd love to see updates as yours grow....

Sue

here's mine on hatch day...it will be fun to find out if it's a pullet or cockerel!

A question - are mine Mille Fleur D'uccles or something else?  QC Supply sold them as "Mille Fleur Bantams".  I've been reading something about D'uccles are bearded.  I don't see any beards on mine.

 

Thanks

The beards won't really show until they feather, but you can kind of see that they have puffy little chins/cheeks out of chick fluff. Look like D'Uccles to me! 🐤🐥🐤🐥
