    Ooooooo, lovely! I love that first black and white girl. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    I have mille fleur d'uccles, but I have to say that their temperament is pretty cranky. They are not friendly chickens and both the hens and the roo routinely peck at me. The roo flogs me about once a week. They are on the short list for rehoming. Sad, because I find them to be gorgeous birds.

    They look really nice. Think the black mottled hen may have too much white, cause she should get more mottling as she ages. But if bred to the black mottled male, it may balance out.

    Aren't they precious? [​IMG] Where did you get them?
    ETA: You do realize that you don't have to keep both the roosters, right? Blue and black are compatable colors, you really only need one or the other. Unless you want to, can never have enough d'uccles. [​IMG]

    I'm goin to attempt to keep them all together unless they start fighting Im curious to see whos goin to be the prettier roo. Also I'd like to keep the black mottled to balance out the white on the hen.

    How much mottling does the blue male have?

    he has very little, about the only white on him is his chest, tips of wings and end of tail feathers.

    So then either the blue or the black male would work with the black female.
