    It's starting to get the pattern of a D'uccle, it also has the start of muffs and feathered legs, D'uccles have that also. So i'd say that could be a D'uccle.

    if it came with your d'uccle order its looks like a mille fleur pullet (you should be able to tell the gender of all your d'uccles now)




    they dont have patterns...any mille fleur colored/patterned chicken will/can look like that give or take some black away...d'uccles have beards, feathered shanks, and vulture hocks, they dont have muffs. ;)

    Oh yes! I ALWAYS get mixed up with beards and muffs, my sister has Ameraucanas and BBDAS... so it gets kind of confusing for me... I said once "Look at her muffs.." "You mean beard?" I'll let you do this now! [​IMG]

    I wonder what happened... I got a Java from a hatchery but it was actually a Jersey Giant, and they didn't sell Jersey Giants...

    it looks like a mix of colors. could be a porcelain and black mottled mix....It is no doubt a D'uccle tho

    it looks just like the one standing behind it in the last pic

    were did the breeder get their stock from it looks just like a milli...a porcilain is a milli fleur just diluted by the lavender gene so there could be a chance that you just got a regular millinone of the chicks are porcilains though if they are yellow and come to think of it its not the millie coloring really eaither...
