    This is my girl, Cookie Dough. I have potty trained her, and she lives in the house with me! She gets to have free time while I work. Ain't she the sweetest thing you ever saw?

    she is extremely cute! I do believe your girl is actually a d'anver. Does she have feathered feet and legs?

    She does! She lays the cutest little bantam eggs! And I hatched her under a broody Silkie, who for some reason also had a golf ball as part of her "clutch". It was hilarious. She is a d'Uccle, I am pretty positive

    Not a lot, but a bit of fluff

    d'uccle should have completely feathered legs and feet and a straight comb. Your girl appears to have clean feet and a rosecomb. She is definitely d'anver
