    this pair was bought as "porcelin bantams"
    D'uccle or something else? I'll post some better pics tomorrow.

    I agree with Zonoma. You can definitey see the beards on the roos but the hens are lacking. I can also definitely see the mille fleur pattern under the lavendar. Breed the two and maybe you will get some muffs and beards on your hens or breed in a good quality mille fleur d'uccle.

    They were bought as a pair with no idea of their age.
    We would like for them to breed some day. I would like to find a better quality hen to add to them and make it a trio.
    Thanks

    You have a porcelain d'Uccle roo and a porcelain Booted Bantam hen. Breeding them together you should get nearly all bearded babies, but you will have some non-bearded.

    D'uccles - Yes.
    The rooster is bearded but the hen isn't.

    That rooster have a very intesting shade of color. I absolutely love my D'uccles! The hens are soo sweet and adorable! The roosters are ok but don't want anything to do with you.

    Quote:There is no Mille Fleur there, it is porcelain, which is MF affected by lavender. Breeding them together you will get porcelain, not MF.
