So... I have this chick that I initially thought was part of the d'Uccle bantam assortment I ordered from Ideal, but as it grows up I start doubting that more.
It has always been MUCH larger than the other d'Uccles from the assortment, and now it's so big that it looks like a small standard instead of a bantam. It is white, except it has two feathers on one wing that are buff with black dots at the end. I'm starting to think it's a mixed breed since it's so bizarre!
My chicks just turned 2 weeks today and are all the same age. Here you can see a Brown Red d'Uccle, an Orpington, and mystery chick on the right. The size difference between it and the known d'Uccle is so striking, but that d'Uccle was always the runt--it's much smaller than my Mille Fleur & Buff d'Uccles too, but still.
And here it is again with a Barred Rock & Australorp, still on the right:
It has feathered hocks and leg feathers like a d'Uccle should and appears to have a beard. It's just so... big... and weird! Any input is appreciated.
