can you tell me if my porcelain d'uccle bantam pair are show quality? i have not done enough research on porcelain d'uccles to know if they are show quality. they are a little over 6 months old. by the time my next fair comes along they should already be molted. but from your perspective i need to know if they even have a chance to win in any contest. thanks!

both together. (not best pose)

males tail.

females tail.

male

female
definatly not her best pose.

i am not the best at getting good pictures but they do pose.

From what I read about Porcelain Dutches, you have a good balance of the cream and gray. But as far as standards for the D'Uccles I don't know, sorry. Thay are both very pretty birds.

Are you going to sell eggs from them in the Spring?

Quote:i might but the female hasnt started laying yet and if you wanted pure breeds i would have to seperate them from the rest of the flock and hope that te male starts being more fertile. but if i do that i will be sure and let you know. and remember porcelains stink at being fertile! but i will sure try for you!

Quote:i bought them from our local feed store. at first i thought they were mixed breeds because you can never rely on a feed store to give you quality breeds but later on i found at they were not mixed breeds. i was surprised!

I dont have a trained eye for this breed yet to comment on their show-worthiness, but I love this porcelain color. You are not helping here, my dear.
My DH is going to absolutely shun me, but I may just have to have some.

Quote:im sorry! XD like i said when i first got these birds i thought they were mixed breeds because i had never seen any other bird like them. but then i found out they were not mixed. and i think they are BEAUTIFUL!!! make sure and tell your DH that if he lets you get some you will let him get a 4 wheeler or something!
