    I'm not much of a bantam person, but I just love this little guy. He's nice too, and hasn't tried to launch an attack on me unlike some others here! He has three D'Uccle wives. I had no idea how far a D'Uccle could fly until I moved them the other day. The wet weather was getting their feet muddy, and one of them got away while I was moving them to a dry coop. She flew 100' without stopping, but luckily got stuck in a tumbleweed when she landed! She was about 10' off the ground too.

    Beautiful d'Uccles you have there, they are very nice quality and I love to hear that they are nice! I've heard that alot of peoples d'Uccle roosters are nasty, but it looks like both of ours are sweet [​IMG] Which is nice!
    Mine are decent fliers, though you should have seen my d'Anver flying, she was almost as good as a pigeon!

    Beautiful! I have a mille fleur roo and he's not nasty though he is wary of strangers. He is very good with the girls.
