    Hey all
    I was fine with figuring that Pilgrim was some kind of D'uccle-D'anver boy.
    That was until I realized that he only has 4 toes,the woman I bought him from said he should have 5 and was a Seabright.(apparently she couldn't count or never bothered to look through the fluff)
    Besides that his feet aren't slate they're a nice orange.
    He looks exact to a Quail Belgium Bearded D'Anver Bantam,except for his feet!

    It would really help if I could finally find out what this little guy is crossed with.
    Thanks everyone.

    Well, neither d'Uccles nor d'Anvers have 5 toes. So he probably is what you thought he was, a cross between the two, with the feathered legs from the d'Uccle side.

    D'uccles and D'anvers have slate colored feet though.

    I think this post also answered my question that I didn't have to ask lol. He just described a chicken that I just got. I have been searching the internet to find one that looks like her, and not having much luck. She does look just like a combination of these two birds.

    I don't know anything about his breed, but the look on his face is great. [​IMG]
