Breed and sex for this feather-legged banty? - Page 2

I would be thrilled with a porcelain or a self-blue d'uccle.  Pullet or cockerel, either way.  I was hoping to get a few d'uccles in this assortment from Ideal, but so far it's proven to be almost 100% Cochin.  Lots of color variety, but not so much breed variety.   We have a trio of Millies that we love, but bought them from a fellow 4-H leader so I haven't experienced them as chicks.  I expected a fluffier chin due to the beard.  Are there non-bearded Belgian d'uccles?

If a duccle doesn't have a beard, they are called a Booted Bantam. Very similar to a duccle but they have no beard, muffs, and they usually have large wattles. He might get a beard, you just have to wait and see :)

It's is so hard to wait!  However, sometimes it's worth it.  I just realized to day that what I thought was a black cochin is actually a birchen.  I thought it was a little different than the others, but it took a bit for the white lacing to show up around the neck.
