    Which type of rooster is more friendly and good with kids out of one of these two?

    Houdan
    Know nothing about Houdan roosters, just know that the hens are very friendly and good egg layers, so what about the roos?

    d'Uccle
    I have had an experience with a d'Uccle rooster and he was so sweet! But he had an eye infection so maybe he wasnt going anywhere because of it.

    So which one is more friendly and social and good with kids?

    I know nothing about Houdans, but I do LOVE my d'Uccle roo. I think he is gorgeous and if I could take him with me everywhere, I probably would. He comes with me into the garden, and I carry him on walks around the property, and sometimes he comes into the house and takes a nap with me. I absolutely love the little guy. Wish I had a pullet so we could have little d'Uccle chicks. I LOVE them!!!

    houdan roos can be sweet or mean, depends on the bird.
    d'uccle roos are almost always nice and gentle, though my friend had a rather mean one.

    I would vote Houdan just because they are kinda rare. I have a mottled houdan hen and she is awesome. She layed an egg in my daughters lap! Wish I could find a roo.
