    I have a trio of blue d'uccles.No one will give me any answers on them. I tried on google couldnt find any answers just gave me hatcheries selling them,and im not to fond of hatchery stock.anyways i have some questions if you have answers please tell me.

    do blue to blue breeding create blue, splash, and black like most other chicken breeds do
    are the blue genetics the same in them as in other birds
    i have heard that there is a laced blue or something along the lines is this true
    aprosimatley how long are there feathers on their feet supposed to be

    Does anyone have any D'uccle hatching eggs if so please pm me with more info
    thanks

    If they are Andalusian Blue & not Self Blue a blue x blue mating will produce blue, black &splash offspring.

    blue looks like this and will yield splash, blue, and black
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    self blue (also known as lavender) will yield only self blue babies

    thats blue boy. i almost got rid of him because he was attacking everyone but he soon calmed down and is a sweet boy (well to me and my kids at least lol). you should be able to look in my d'uccle album and see pics though they aren't updated yet. you can also see them here and i think there are more pics here as well but this album contains almost all of my birds though i have lost 2 of them (not my d'uccles though) to dogs https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.661770694681.2122107.62004766&type=3 there are 352 pica in that album and this is the main link you should be able to view all my public albums https://www.facebook.com/holly.dowden.33/photos_albums
