    Mottled Cochin Gender?

    Hi everyone! I bought four bantams. Pretty sure the two d'uccles and the easter egger are pullets. But I'm a little confused about the mottled cochin. It's about 6 weeks old. Any guesses on his/her gender? There has been some comb growth and it looks kinda reddish. It's more red when it's...

    Worried about week and a half old chick

    I just got 6 chicks that are a week to week and a half. One of my D'uccle chicks, oldest of my chicks, is more lethargic than the others and does not seem to peep. She does eat and drink. Her breathing seems a little heavy to me. Not gasping for air or anything. This morning 5 of the chicks were...

    Are D'Uccles more fragile?

    Hello friends! :) I got into the D'Uccle breed about 2 years ago now. I started off with a trio; one rooster and two hens. About 1 year after I bought them, I lost my top hen. Wanting more breeders, I bought two straight run chicks. 1 male, 1 female as it turned out. 3.5 months later and I lose...

    Hola to my fellow Chicken Lovers

    I'm Christy, living in South Florida. I fell in love with chickens 3 years ago when I got a part time job with a mobile petting zoo. My favorite girl was a d'Uccle named Spot. Over a few months she would lay an egg during a birthday party. I was just screwing around and kept taking them...

    Recurring Pasty butt?? Please help

    I'm really worried about one of my new D'uccle chicks. We've raised plenty of chicks, and I've had my fair share of pasty butt. We always treat it the same way, and it usually works just fine. But Marguerite (my porcelain baby) has been having pasty butt over and over and over. We clean her off...

    Pink or Blue? Bantam Genders - Pic Heavy

    Hi All, We have a batch of bantam chicks that we've just moved outside to the Halfway-House - Halfway between hatching and the coop! We're newbies, so we're just guessing on genders, so I figured it would be a good idea to ask the BYC community for a little assistance. The pics aren't the best...

    Sexing my Golden Neck D'uccle

    Will Daisy be able to keep her name? She is our four-week old D'uccle. I hope the photos might point someone in the right direction. Thanks in advance for any educated guesses.

    My little ladies have not been interested in treats. After many attempts I finally got them to have some plain yogurt today, after sprinkling some Scratch and Peck herbs on top. Nutritious, messy and entertaining!

    Talk about.... Chick music

    Are any of you playing music for your chicks? Soothing nighttime compositions or upbeat playtime tunes? Do you find yourself singing to them when you tuck them in at night? I thought it might be fun to share your recommendations. My little Daisy D'uccle finally made it up onto the roost swing...
