    I just picked up 9 d'uccles that a co-worker was giving away. One of them is a color I've never seen or heard of. It's got the mille fleur pattern, but on a white background rather than the usual reddish-brown. The dots are black. They bought it as a chick and the owner didn't know how it was that color. It appears to be pure d'uccle and not a cross. Anyone ever seen this ? I can't send pictures here with this phone, but could email some if anyone wants to see it.

    It's got more white. Basically white backgrown with black dots. I just got home with them, so may be a little bit before I can send a pic. But I will send one.

    It looks like that, but can't remember if the tail has that much black. I'll be going out to the barn in a couple of hours and will try to get a picture if it's not too dark in the barn. If so, I'll get one after work.

    I'm at work until 2:30 and will take a pic as soon as I get home. It does look like the picture of the silver one. It has the black tail, but not quite as many black dots. It's a young pullet-no more than 4 or 5 months old. I guess it will be impossible to find a male the same color.
