    I just came across the sablepoot online and i think i am in love, but everything i looked into was in the UK is there anyone here in the US or on byc that would maybe have some hatching eggs? I am particularly interested in the gold mille fleurs, or silver? Can anybody help me out with where or who as them here in the US, or even better in utah.Thanks for the help. O and i wouldnt mind some info about them either, personality, characteristics, are they ok to mix with heavy/large breeds?

    Did you try ebay? I don't know if they are common in the US (I currently live in the UK) but I would think that someone has them. I think they are lovely looking chickens. I currently have Lavender and Lemon Millefleur eggs in my incubator and hope to get at least one of each. Over here it seems the Lavender and Lemon Millefleur are pretty common with the Porcelain, Gold Millefleur and Silver Millefleur much less common but it's the Buff Mottled that seems to rocket in price (at least that is what I have noticed). I hope you are able to find a breeder! [​IMG]

    Quote:If you are in the UK, there are some D'Uccles on ebay. I know they have Millefleur and Buff mottled. I ran the search using D' Hatching Eggs. I know I have found some breeders with websites that raise D'Uccles but I have bookmarked tons of breeders that have any chicken I vaguely might want some day and it would take hours to go through them all. [​IMG] I have been trying to hatch out some D'Anvers with not very good luck. My first effort was with 6 eggs and I got 0. I tried again this time with 6 and have only two possibles.

    Sorry OP for hijacking your thread! [​IMG]

    Quote:ooooh yes! How odd! I did a search for D'uccles and found nothing. Maybe I just did the search when none were for sale.

    Did I not read somewhere on MPC that they have some rare breeds and if you want anything in particular to contact them? It might be worth a try.

    I usually will run several different searches for example - D'Uccles = D'Uccles Hatching Eggs - D' Uccles Hatching Eggs - D' Hatching Eggs - Barbu Hatching Eggs

    I spend waaaay too much time on ebay. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    By going through the website for The University of Minnesota, I found their Poultry U site http://www1.umn.edu/twincities/index.html and found that there is a Belgian d'Uccle and Booted Bantam Club. My suggestion would be to contact the club. I don't know if they include the Duch Booted Bantam - Dutch Booted Sablepoot - Sablepoot.
