Is this a Belgian d'Anvers, or Belgian D'uccle?

    I have two pullets and one rooster. I have always thought that they were all Millie Fleur D'uucle's... But the pullets are SO very different, and I saw some information on the d'Anvers... I can't tell much of a difference, however, y'all always are able to help out!

    Your birds are Belgian Bearded D'Uccles. D'Anvers have rose combs, while your birds have single combs. Also, D'Anvers don't have feathered feet or the millie fleur color pattern.

    They are Belgian Bearded D'Uccles (Mille Fleur variety). The main difference between D'Uccles and D'Anvers is that D'Uccles have feathered legs.
