    I'm learnig everything I can before purchasing my first MF d'Uccle's. I've read and read but still can't visualize what the vulture featers look like. Can some of you post pictures of your mfd's? I would love to see them. The more I look at them the more I fall in love with the breed. Are there any referance books for the breed? Any knowledge you could pass on would be great. BTW I'm really surprised how many mille fleur booted bantams are being sold as d'Uccle's.

    I know you are looking for pictures of MFD, but this is another members photo of a silkie with vulture hocks, maybe it will give you the general idea as to what they are.

    They were 8 months old in those pics. They are so sweet and friendly. Definitely my favorite bantams.

    They came from Ideal, so I wasn't expecting too much and I am sure they are far from show quality. I am really happy with their coloring and disposition though.
