    I had two hens and a cock, but both hens were swiped by airborne predators. I still have the cock and he is about the cutest, sweetest thing you ever did see. And yes, they're shown (not by me but I've seen lots of posts on the d'Uccle thread by people who do).

    How much do they cost? I saw a couple on ksl and they were different but beautiful and someday I would like to have some and show them. What all do you need to do to show ( as far as getting the birds ready)

    First you want your bird to be of ABA standards. You can look that up here . My birds are not laying real good right now I have a lot of pullets that have not started laying yet. You can see my birds in signature.
    I will however be selling eggs in January, everyone should be laying and I will have hatched out a few by then. I don't know where you are located. I have sold chicks before, but won't be doing that until spring. You will love these birds they are sweet and friendly and don't mind confinement unless they are over-crowded even by one.

    I am located in Utah and would love to get birds from an experienced breeder instead of off ksl.

    If they allow you to see the birds it would be okay. But you really don't know what you are getting. Shows are another way to get them, if there is a poultry show in your area.
