    Are mottled d'uccles hard to find? I am dying to get a few d'uccles and really like the mottled ones...however the place where I have been ordering them from doesn't get them ..ugh.. Are d'uccles good to have? I have just bantams (silkies, cochins, and some frizzled cochins). Now I want some d'uccles. does the want ever stop?!? [​IMG]

    They're not too terribly hard to find if you are willing to order from a hatchery or get hatching eggs. Mine are from Privett, I think (got them from TSC). Where are you located?

    There are some ladies in Tucson who have some nice mottled d'uccles; but right now it is too hot to ship. I think they are on BYC, but I'n not sure of their screen name.

    Quote:I'm located in Wisconsin. I've got my chicks, so far, from a feed store who has ordered them all for me. He said he can get d'uccles, but not in mottled...hmm..
