    I ordered last spring two golden neck d'uccles and two white d'uccles. Only one of the white ones survived and I still have her. Out of my golden necks, I got one roo and a hen. But my hen looks just like a white d'uccle, with only the faintest sign of golden/buff creme color. Could she actually be a white d'uccle? This is important for me to know, since I want to breed them very soon so I can have more Golden Neck d'Uccles but I want to know for sure if she is a Golden Neck.

    Here's a picture of her.

    You can kind of see some more "buff creme" coloring in this picture.

    The one I know is white for sure is on the right.

    Another picture of her ^

    Does anyone on here have golden neck hens, and would like to share pictures to compare with? And do you think she's white or golden neck?

    You might get a better answer asking your question in a d'uccle thread. I keep some but am unfamiliar with the genetics of color so all I can say is she's cute.

    I'm not a D'uccle breeder, but she doesn't look like a Goldenneck to me. I would say she is White, or a mixed variety (parents of different varieties).

    Based on the pic I just saw I would say white. The gold should not be hard to see and should extend down into the breast area. At least it did in the bird I just looked at.

    Even though she has a bit of a golden tint I'd say she's more white, but I'm no expert.
