    This little fella was dropped to a Fellow BYCer's home (along with an ameraucana girl) after the original owner was evicted from their home, I'm assuming he's a D'Uccle (but maybe bantam buff brahma looks possible)! Needless to say he's attatched to his friend so he came home with us yesterday. I'm not totally sure on age but would guess around 8-10 weeks, and the Colombian looking neck looks incomplete as of yet (but not sure totally)! Can anyone give me a definite breed and/or coloration for him?

    I'm really new to bantams but he looks just like my D'uccle boys.

    My Mille Fleur D'Uccles started out that color and got the spotting later....black and white spots showed up all over but at first they looked just like that.

    That's for sure a Mille Fleur...as juveniles, they can look quite different, depending on their bloodline. Some have more black feathering than others as juveniles.

    He's a young Mille Fleur d'Uccle, but it's too early to tell what his coloring is going to do. He SHOULD develop spangles on his body feathers and hackles, plus there should also be white tips on the feathers of his tail. Most MF d'Uccle don't develop their full coloring until almost a year or even more, plus the spangles or mille fleur become more plentiful after each molt. He's cute [​IMG]
