    D'uccles are a "True Bantam". Which means they have no large fowl counter part, therefor they only come in bantam size. [​IMG] The American Standard of Perfection calls for a small bird with "bull' neck and little to no wattles.

    I have large breed hens and yes, when I put my D'uccles in with them they did have a bit of a pecking order going on. But now I have them in with my Silkies (due to lack of coop space) and there is still pecking order.
    I would house them in a separate coop.
