    Ya Blue Belle had a d'uccle mother,spike didn't. But they had a frizzle dad and blue belle was flat feathered. We think Spike has a little silkie in him because of his head, and most silkies have one extra toe on each foot, so does he.

    well bluebell cant be a true americauna, she has feathered feet! and spike has the wrong comb to be a cochin... plus if they re related they are mutts... VERY cute
