    Meet Ross, I purchased him as a hatching egg. There must have slight mix up by the breeder and some stupidity o my part. I thought it would be a cochin like the rest of what I have. When I contacted the breeder he said it was a d'uccle. I posted his pictures on BYC group and was told he was a sabelpoot.So I searched sabelpoots and yes that is what he is as well as he is beautiful. Just 2.5 mos old. I am having a hard time locating Dutch Booted Bantams. I would like or Ross to have his own wives as I am not wanting to do mixed birds. I have googled and gone on everysite I could find with no luck.

    Here is the best research I found about the breed and it's difference to the d'uccle

    Does anyone on here have any?. Eggs or chicks?

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    I hope you can find some more bantams! I'd try posting in the Buy-Sell-Trade section of these forums: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/67/buy-sell-trade

    Maybe some body there will have some available or know where to get some.
