    We have a couple Mille Fleurs and have seen
    "d Uccle" in print but haven't heard it pronounced. A little help from you experts, please.[​IMG]

    We had the same question for a long time...we bought a chick from the mystery bantam bin at the feed store that turned out to be a self-blue d'Uccle. Since we didn't know how to pronounce it, we would jokingly call him the "duckle" all the time (we knew that was wrong, but it sounded so funny).

    Well, we know how it's pronounced now, but unfortunately the name has stuck and I now have a *dew clay* called duckle!
