    They're listed under "B" for Belgian D'Uccle or Barbu d'Uccle and it says they're supposed to be laying cream colored eggs as well. ....you have a masquerader in the mix my friend!

    Sounds like some of your birds might actually be Bantam EEs or Ameraucanas..... Being that all of these breeds have beards and muffs.. they may have gotten mixed up at some point.... do you have pics?
