    White d'Uccles are very rare and so you'd get plenty of Best Variety with them probably. But any bird is a good show bird if its quality is good enough. Pick a breed/color you like best and then find a good breeder that will sell you birds

    Feathered legged breeds can be tricky. the judges like the feathers long and unbroken. (especially the vulture hocks on d'uccles)When they are raised on dirt the feathers are hard to keep clean for showing. white is a rare color. It is one I would like! So you should be pretty successful with that!! they are fun and spunky little birds. We have porcelians!
