    I am planning on getting bantams next year, and I have room for about three. These are the breed choices i have picked.
    1. Fawn Silver Duckwing OEGB Hen

    2. Mille Fleur d Uccle Hen

    3. Mottled Japanese Bantam Hen

    Does anyone have experience with these breeds?

    Does Anyone think these might not be the best choices?
    Im Open for sggestions. Thanks.

    We have one half D'Uccle Mille Fleur hybrid (crossed with Serama), and she's our favorite bird. Sweet, friendly and beautiful. Our other hens are OEGB/Serama hybrids, and they're nice too but much more agressive than the D'Uccle.

    Can you post a pic of your birds? I'd especially like to see the D'Uccle/serama hybrid if possible!

    ETA: I love my mille fleur d'uccle hens - they good natured, quiet and they seem to get along well with the rest of my flock. They're even gentle with my Polish.

    The old english is a more aggressive bantam than the d'uccle,but getting all hens, you shouldn't have any aggression problems.

    I have not had an aggressive OEGB (male or female), d'Uccles I have owned a raptor in feathers with two of the 8 males I had, never females, and the Japs have always been easy going, male or female.
