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.
