    Hello. There's probably a thread for Belgian Bearded d'Uccles, but I've only found the one dedicated to the porcelain variety. Apologies if this doesn't belong here.

    Anyway, I have this 3 month old mille fleur colored rooster and was wondering if he meets the standard for his breed. If not show quality, what about breeding quality? Or is it too early to tell?

    Thank you. ^_^ Tomorrow I'll try to get a picture of him standing without me or my mom holding him so everyone can get a better look at his posture.

    Finally managed to get some pictures of this fellow. Wow, he's a mover when he's set down! Hopefully people can tell more now about his breed quality from his posture. His feet actually are very well feathered, but he's going through molting right now i think. He lost a couple feathers when I set him down and he began running around the house.

    Hes a little light in color.
    In my opinion he looks scrawny compared to the others ive seen.
    I dont see any white Spangles on his tail.

    He looks good though! Hes not bad!
    Especially if your just starting out! :)

    Well, he's only 3 months, and mottling a bit, so he his feathers might change. I am pleased to know he can be potentially used as breeding stock though. ^_^ Many thanks!
