    So before I started my breeding pen of Millie's, my rooster went in with my white silke hen. She layed eggs and we hatched them. These chicks are some of the prettiest I have seen. I am wondering....

    Is this how people have started the d'uccle cochin breed?

    Sorry, I am very new to breeding and I wanted to know if anyone else has done this before with good quality breeds?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by the d'uccle cochin breed?

    You have mentioned three breeds in your post: d'uccles, cochins and silkies. You mentioned two varieties: mille (I assume you mean mille fleur), which is a recognised variety in a number of breeds, and is also being developed in other breeds (such as cochin); and white, a recognised variety in many breeds. I'm not aware of anyone trying to develop white in a breed where it is not already recognised, but I suppose it is possible.
