    [​IMG] Help! I'm incubating some D'Uccle eggs. How does one pronounce the word "D'Uccle"?

    Thank you so much! The lady I purchased my eggs from said she pronounced it Do-cles. She said another person calls them Do-Clay. I think Do-Clay must be the correct way to say it.

    Since it is French, it would be pronounced doocluh.

    Oh, thanks for posting this! I have two and it's embarrassing to not know how to pronounce what they are when people ask me about them. [​IMG]
