Well, I have both Lavender and Mottled D'uccles, why not cross them? Next spring or possibly this fall I will put in the initial crossing. Offspring should be Black recessive Lav, mottled. If this project goes according to plan, It will only be a 2-3 year thing Personally, I'm very Excited about Pearl D'uccles. If you've heard/seen any other pearls, Please share! Also, If you love D'uccles and have the ingredients for this cross, by all means, Join me!
