    I really love these birds the coloring is so pretty! Are they all banties or do they come in standard also? [​IMG]

    One of the Belgian true bantams (meaning there is no standard-sized form),

    You say you like the coloring...why not purchase some largefowl Cochin Mille Fleur project birds?

    erijn5:
    Mille Fleur ---- Is the Variety ( color )
    D'uccle -------- Is the Breed

    You can get the Mille Fleur pattern on a number of breeds just like the D'uccle comes in a number of varieties

    Get a D'uccle (or several)!!! I have one rooster and will be looking for hens in the spring. These are sweet, gentle birds that love being held and have great personalities. I have a color called "porcelain" but there are others. Check BYC eggss for sale, someone there lists eggs regularly.

    if you have eggs to trade, watch the egg trains or participate in the monthly swap.. i see the MFD'uccle come up quite a bit.. i have a pair that are pet quality, and once they start laying i'll have them for trade....

    they are pretty little birds.. i'm waiting to get some of the MFCochin in february... same coloring but fluffier... ssooo cute...
