    I took a photo of a bantam cockerel recently (see below),
    and am not sure what breed it is?
    Is it a Belgian d'Uccle?
    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    No it looks like a cochin bantam to me. I'm not sure what color though.

    No, Belgium d'Uccles have beards and muffs, and do not come in a similar variety to yours. It is a Cochin bantam, though I'm unsure of the variety. Probably a mixed Cochin bantam, or perhaps a very bad-quality Golden-laced Cochin bantam.
