    Sweetest and smartest chickens (IMO) there are. Mine responded to tricks such as up, lay, walk, and pose! And every time I was outside she would fly on my shoulder until I carried her in my arms. RIP.
    I also have a 'wild' roo. He was given to us at 2 years...just left in a barn with no attention from humans except to feed. Now he's best pals with out neighbor's cat. He follows that tom everywhere and tries to snuggle up to him. [​IMG]

    All in all the best birds I've EVER had. [​IMG]

    you're making me jealous![​IMG]
    We loved my first d'uccle from a hatchery. As things often happen, disaster struck in the form of a racoon and we lost our beloved Chloe. She was everyone's favorite! All the children on the street would come by to play with her after school. What a gentle, docile, sweetie! And so beautiful!!!

    Since we lost her, have been trying to place another d'uccle pullet in my flock but keep ending up with boys! [​IMG] Don't get me wrong, my boys have been super lovely and so tame, but I can't keep them!! So I have to give them away after raising them for all those months. But I think it says alot about the breed that I keep trying and trying!

    good luck to you![​IMG]

    I just got a D'uccle a few days ago, I used to think my faverolle was sweet but she took a little while to tame. This d'uccle is insta friendly!

    I picked out a single Mille Fleur from the farm store and I brought home a girl! Lucky me! Muffin is great, she is the first one to run up to me in the coop and she's only 9 weeks old. When muffin walks away I can make a kissy noise and she runs right back to me. My d'uccle is constantly on my lap when I sit in the coop.[​IMG]

    I absolutely LOVE my little d'Uccle. [​IMG]

    She's the SWEETEST little thing I've ever seen.

    Each morning when I let the chickens out, she stands at my feet waiting to be picked up.

    If I don't pick her up fast enough, she tries to fly up to my arm or shoulder.

    I carry her around with me while I'm doing my chicken chores.

    She fits in the palm of my hand or under my armpit. [​IMG]

    My daughter (who previously had NO interest in chickens) has asked that "we" breed more d'Uccles!

    YOU WILL LOVE THIS BREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
