    Got three at the feedstore today to give to my broody, whose eggs are on Day 20 today. They all have feathered legs and it appears they all have single combs and possibly beards. Hoping they are D'Uccles, but not sure. They didn't have any that appeared to be porcelains, so I picked out the ones with feathered legs, Mille Fleur-type chick coloring and probable beards. Two seem to be the same color and one looks slightly different colored. I didn't want the EEs or OEGBs or Sebrights. With feathered legs, none of them should be any of those.

    Quote:5 dollars? Dang Cyn! And for a BANTAM?

    I went to a breeder last month with d'uccle babies and those look just like his. I vote d'uccle. So glad you got em'! If you need to re-home them when they're older you can PM me!

    I looked at the buff colored one and I think it does have a single comb or I'd have thought Brahma. Was trying for D'Uccles since I didn't think I could pick out a D'Anver with any accuracy.

    D'uccle chicks can vary in color. Some are lighter, some are dark. When I raised them, I tried to see if the color of the chick had any bearing on gender, but I couldn't find a correlation.

    Your other possibility is that they could be Brown Red d'Uccles.

    This feed store gets theirs from Ideal, so has to be whatever Ideal sells in this breed.
