I plan on getting Belgian d'Uccle bantams some time in the future, but there is one thing about them that 'bugs' me, and that is their boots! I am very interested in genetics, and know a lot about budgie (parakeet) genetics, but have not looked into d'Uccle genetics at all yet. I definitely will when I get closer to buying them. But, just for now, I thought I would ask if anyone knows much about this, eg. has anyone ever made an attempt to breed out the boots? If so, how successful was it? It may be totally impossible for all I know at this point, but would be interested to know if others have tried this, and any results.
