    Hi all! I think I have a D'uccle hen, but I'm not sure...

    My roo is supposed to be a bantam Wyandotte, but I'm not seeing any lacing, so is he poorly marked, a mix, or something else completely?

    We also have 3 Japanese bantams, but I know what those are [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    That is a bantam buff columbian wyandotte roo. We have a pair. Not all wyandottes are laced.[​IMG]

    They are about 6-7 months old. Mother-in-law got them as day-olds from an assorted bantam hatchery box and we got them from her in April. Roo crows and we got our first egg day before yesterday from one of the girls with another egg today.

    there isnt anything that says roo to me about your D'uccle, how old is she? i have multiple D'uccles that have huge red combs that you were guaranteed were Roos. and i second the buff colombian wyandotte roo call. pretty pretty little guy.

    Both are 6-7 months old. D'uccle is super sweet and my daughter's lap chicken. The Wyandotte roo is my son's favorite. Son has red hair the same color as the roo's feathers! They are best buddies.
