I have 3 one month chicks that appear to be d'Uccles but they are not bearded. They are purebred bantams. Do d'Uccles all have beards?

I took my chicks out for their first outing this am. Upon looking closer and comparing then to my 2 Sebrights in the sun, I believe they are bearded. Just not as pronounced as my Silkies that are the same age. I also checked out "feather-hocked"? They have feathers growing out toward their rear end from their hocks that look like extra wing feathers. So that must be what they are. They are all 4 weeks old.

do you have any pics? booted bantams and d'uccle look alike it's just the beard that makes the difference. i have noticed that all my other chicks look like they have hocks at that age as well when they dont have them

here are some of my d'uccles these are all different birds


this one came out of my paring of a self blue cock to porcelain hen
