We have this breed of chickens but need to know.....
Is it doo-CLAY or DUKE-uhl or is it neither?
I forgot to add its french
I have heard so many different pronunciations that I use what seems right to me, which is DUCK-ul.
Locally, folks call them DEE-uk-ul
I've heard DOO-clay; doo-CLAY; DUKE-lee; and several other things that I can;t figure out how to spell
I was always taught that you don't pronounce an apostrophe, but blend the sounds on either side unless it's a natural syllable break. Therefore it seems to me that "d'uccle" should be pronounced as if spelled duccle.
I always say it like duh oo kol. I thought the d'uccles were Belgian.
Not French, Flemish. The breed is native to the town/city of Uccle in Belgium.
wha not French ? Thats what Ive been told I am so wrong
I made that same answer once and was directed to the breed's full name: Bearded Belgian D'Uccles
My friends used to say DEE oo KLEE ol and I have no clue of how they got that.
Im going to have to give my friend a D'Uccle lesson.
