Well as most of you know I lost a majority of my Belgian d'Uccle flock to thieves. So I have been thinking of moving somewhere that is MORE COUNTRY than where we live now. So, I am thinking of re-establishing when we DO move. I would like to start a flock of production egg layers as well as some broilers. I will also raise and breed more d'Uccle's. I have found a few different breeders who offer the following breeds. Any thoughts or suggestions on these breeds? EGG LAYERS Purebred Dutch Barnevelders Purebred French Marans Purebred Welsummers Purebred Araucanas Purebred Ameraucana New Hampshire Reds Rhode Island Reds Buff Orpingtons Speckled Sussex Golden Laced Wyandottes MEAT BIRDS/BROILERS California Blue Foot Poulet de Gaulouse (Bresse Standard of Perfection/ French Label Rouge certified) Cobb Should I be concerned about the Blue Foots and the Poulet de Gaulouse? I know these are RARE breeds but the breeder seems to know his stuff. They said their breeds come from Greenfire Farms stock and the Blue Foots are from Bob Shipley stock. Just don't want to pay for something that's not what I paid for.
