Welcome to my flock page! I have been raising them since 2005. They are one of my favorite
bantams breeds, and sweet docile birds, great pets, and good mamas. My flock consists of:
Gizmo was hatched by one of my Game hens in spring 2013. Despite being raised by natural
incubation, he is very tame and docile and enjoys being held. Gizmo is my top rooster, and
doesn't mind letting other roosters know this. Even if they are double his size! Gizmo enjoys
eating treats, being petted, enjoying spring greens, and watching over his lady's.
Garbanzo hatched out of a batch of mail order hatching eggs in summer 2013. Though he was
handled a lot as a chick, he is rather standoffish and nervous, but willing to defend his hens in
if he has too. Garbanzo is second below Gizmo, but the two get along very well. He loves
leading his girls out to free range, dust bathing, and fresh greens.
Buttons was hatched by a barnyard game hen in spring 2012. She is one of my two remaining
d'Uccles out of my original stock, and one of my personal favorites. Buttons is very calm, a little
shy with strangers, and enjoys being held, but not by strangers. She has had a cankerous
growth in her left nostril for the past year. Thankfully it does not seem to be getting any larger.
Buttons enjoys hanging out, scratching in the garden, and being held.
Speckles was hatched a month after Buttons, and is also out of my original stock. In fall 2013
two of my d'Uccles, my booted bantam, my sebright, and two mixed bantams got out of their
coop leaving Speckles and my former rooster in the coop. It was early morning, and sadly, a
mother fox and kits came through, killing all six of the escapees. Though Speckles, still in the
coop, was not physically harmed, she never got over the massacre of her flock and has been
nervous and jumpy ever since. She is improving though. Speckles loves to free range, and
hang out with her flock mates.
Peppercorn was hatched by a barnyard game hen in spring 2013. She is sister to Gizmo, and
her father is a murray mcmurray rooster, who I was not pleased with due to all his daughters
having black partridging around the base of their tails, and black around their necks. Peppercorn
is my second flightiest d'Uccle, but her personality has improved substantially. Her favorite
thing to do is free ranging, and scratching in my garden.
Buttercup hatched out of mail order hatching eggs in summer 2013. She is my friendliest
d'Uccle, and my families favorite. Though she has has too much white to be on my breeding
plan, her wonderful personality makes her a for sure keeper. Buttercup loves eating treats of
any kind, free ranging, and being held.
Sunshine is also out of mail order hatching eggs, and hatched in summer 2013. She is one of
my friendliest d'Uccles and cannot resist being curious of everyone and everything that comes
into the coop. I am hoping for some very pretty chicks off of her and Gizmo next spring. Buttercup
loves free ranging, tasty treats such as eggs, greens, and yogurt, and being held.
Ruby is also out of mail order hatching eggs and hatched in summer 2013. She is very inquisitive
and friendly and enjoys people. Ruby has more of a mahogany look to her then my other d'Uccles,
and is also one of my smaller ones. She is unrelated to Gizmo, and I hope to hatch some chicks
off of them soon. Ruby loves treats, free ranging and being held.
Jewel was hatched out of mail order hatching eggs in summer 2013 along with Garbanzo,
Buttercup, Miracle, Sunshine, and Ruby, shortly after I lost most of my adult d'Uccles to a fox
attack. Despite being hand raised, she is very flighty and jumpy and does not like to be handled.
Jewel is a very good layer and enjoys greens and free ranging.
Miss Stacy was hatched spring 2014 in my Incubator. She is friendly and docile, but runs when
the camera comes out, so getting a good photo of her, is very difficult. She also hates being
held, but enjoys eating out of your hand.
Jubilee is another young d'uccle from this past year. She is not overly friendly, but OK with
people she knows. Jubilee is a very active bird and always on the look out for a way to escape.
She enjoys a variety of things from free ranging to dust bathing.
Cupcake was hatched spring 2014. She is very camera shy, but is an all around good natured
bird. She is a good layer, and is one of my larger d'Uccles. She loves attention and her favorite
treat is fresh greens from the garden.
Cheesecake was hatched in my incubator last year along with Miss Stacy, Jubilee, and Cupcake.
Though she was handled a lot, she tends to be jumpy and does not like to be held. Her favorite
things to do are free ranging and hanging out with her sister Cupcake.
Mandy was hatched in spring 2014 along with my other young d'Uccles. She was one of my
''extra'' birds that I was planning to sell, but I decided to keep her after losing Miracle.
She is a friendly good natured girl, and likes people.
Miracle hatched out of mail order hatching eggs in summer 2013. She was a friendly good
natured bird, and loved treats of all kinds. She lived july 2013 - febuary 27th 2015.
She most likely died of some kind internal injury, or related problem.
Besides these birds, I have 3 extra hens and a rooster that I planing on rehomeing soon.
Thanks for checking out my flock page!
