    I have three D'uccle hens and I went down to change their water for the day and what I seen on the floor of their coop were TWO very cute cream eggs! They were perfect. I'm checking to see if they are fertile today, they sure should be..he mates them every day. They are my first fertile hatching eggs I can sell/trade [​IMG] That makes me SO happy! I can now participate in the egg trade! [​IMG]

    Very cool! I have a sweet D'uccle roo but no hens, trying to find a home for him so he can
    have some hens of his own. Congrats on your first eggs!
