    What do you think?

    He is 4 months old, does not have black skin and does not have 5 toes, feathering is regular, just a lot of it! He's my little man Sid (we think he's boy even though he has no rooster characteristics) [​IMG] He gets picked on by everyone because he is so mild mannered so has lost most of his tail feathers.

    I thought all d'Uccle have single combs. He may be a cross of d'Uccle with Belgian Antwerp or the like. [​IMG]

    Yeah I thought so too. I'm wondering if a Silkie or Smooth Frizzle got in the pen? Lol I have so many mystery chickens from this hatch. I have another thread going about rumpless, black skin, 5 toe-ed, bearded mystery chicks [​IMG] There seemed to be some strange breeding going on from this seller, lol. I don't mind, I love how unique they are but I wish I knew what they were!

    I can "see" some D'Uccle body, but that front end is so adorable. Do you know what breeds this breeder has?

    Isn't he just the sweetest thing? [​IMG] I have been in love with this little guy since the moment he hatched. Let's see, she has frizzles, sizzles, silkies, OEGBs, seramas, cochins, d'uccles and wyandottes.

    Well, my guess with those breeds you have listed is: D'Uccle/silkie cross roo over D'Uccle hen - it is always fun to guess [​IMG]

    Quote:I agree. That really is half the fun of having mystery chicks [​IMG] I don't know much about breeding (thankfully haven't got into that yet, lol) so it's all new to me.
