Can someone tell me what type of Bantam this is? And is it a rooster?

    Thank you so much. My wife bought all our hens last spring and she didn't remember what breeds they were. All she knew about this one was it was a Bantam. Thank you for your help!

    You are welcome! There is a d'Uccle thread on BYC that is active a lot of the time you may be interested in.

    Yeah, I'm seeing red patches on the wings, that's usually indicative of a juvenile roo.
