    I'm buying some mini fleurs and porceleins from meyer this year. I know they are not breeder quality but I saw some last year at the fair and just have to have some.

    i started off wanted just mille fleur, now I saw that welps has a HUGE variety of colors of them and I want them all. Lol.
    Is welps a good place to order from?

    I personally have never ordered from them but have always heard good things about them. They used to have pics on their website but last time I checked they had a new format up & there weren't any pics. Good luck! I'm adding Mille Fleurs to my flock this year!

    Ideal also has a good variety of D'uccles; I have some Golden Neck and Porcelain on my order for March. This will be my first order with Ideal, and my very first bantams [​IMG]

    I do also have an order in with Welp's, but their Polish and Bantams hatch at a different date, so my Polish couldn't go on the order unless I wanted 25 [​IMG] I decided to try Ideal out, and love the fact that I don't need 25. Plus, I have my Polish, D'uccle's, and ducks coming in the same order [​IMG]

    Just a heads up, I have never heard good things, or had good experiences with d'uccles from Ideal! Every time they all got sick and died, I would personally not order from them again.

    I got some d'Uccles from Ideal, and they all died. They sent a replacement shipment, and those chicks died, too.
    Oh, LinckHillpoultry- have you tried Privett Hatchery in New Mexico? They have a lot of varieties of d'Uccles too. I've only had the Mille Fleurs, but they were healthy chicks. And their prices are pretty good, too.

    Isn't there a few people in the BYC sign up page that are selling D'Uccles? Or Eggs? maybe you dont want eggs-lots of people could sell you eggs. I dont think the hatcheries have good D'Uccles
