    I've tried not to do this, but been trying to work out the breeds of my hens. They all have the same father a white silkie, so they will be a mix. The White hen with lack around the collar and tail I thinks is a light sussex mix, the brown hen has the same markings so i think she is a red sussex. I'm stuck on the other two! The white one is pure white and a slender frame, the black one is big for a bantam! they all lay white eggs if that helps.

    They all have feathered legs from the Silkie bit. I like the idea of the d'uccle, just not sure how to pronounce it!

    Probably from a porcelain d'Uccle.



    From Dictionary.com for Uccle, Uc·cle: /ˈuklə; Fr. ˈüklə/ Show Spelled[oo-kluh; Fr. y-kluh] Through the d in front and it would be "D oo-kluh"

    I agree on the pekin cross. I don't think you guys call them cochin over there but pekin bantams, right?
