    D'uccle, but I would get two, they seem to stay at the bottom of the pecking order.

    I agree with the two-bantam part. I however, recommend Silkies. You can always get a 1 d'Uccle, and 1 Silkie.

    I'd say Silkies for hatching abilities and cuz they tend to be pretty docile.

    I have also found that d'Uccles seem to get picked on, depending on their age, I have a 3 year old one who is higher in the pecking order than my roo, but a 1/2 year old who is down at the bottom. Silkies are also very good birds, but 2 of an breed often works best.
