    So, I pick up this chicken off of Craigslist yesterday - she was free, and the lady said she was her kid's "pet" and they weren't taking care of her anymore.

    One of my D'Uccles


    She is tiny, and looks a little like my D' Uccles, but there are several differances. I'm thinking she's full grown, because of her feathers and comb, but I'm not sure. Any Ideas?

    She could be a second generation d'uccle cross or an easter egger bantam crossed with old english.She is a nice looking mixed breed.

    Interesting....
    They are both tiny, but the new one is even smaller then the other. Like half the size of my silkies, both of the D' Uccles have fully feathered feet and legs, but the new one is completely bare. - I don't know if this is natural, or if for some reason they cut the feathers off - They clipped her wings, but did a really scary job of it.... She is really scared of people, and other chickens, from what we know about her, she was kept in a small rabbit cage all by herself. =(

    clipping foot feathers is very very dangerous because all those feathers are blood feathers, you would be able to tell if she has any leg feathers as you would see them or the shafts (holes) were the feathers belong and she looks like a completely clean legged bird. the d'uccle looks like a blue mottled mix as d'uccles do not come in the color that you have posted up.

    I've been trying to look at the new one, a little better, so I can check her feet and all that, but I haven't been able to catch the darn bird. [​IMG]

    looks like an attempt at a black mottled d'uccle with some leakage in the hackles as well both are very pretty though
