    Alaska is one of my booted bantam hens, but there is something unique about her - she's my only chicken with poofy cheeks! She is nearly three months old and the poof is very recent, it's been there for about two weeks. I don't know very much about chicken breeds, so I would love it if y'all could tell me what breed you think she is!

    Picture was taken by my wonderful photographer friend, Lisa.

    Cool! What's the difference between those two breeds, or is there a difference?

    d'Anver's have rose combs and clean legs. d'Uccle's have single combs and feathered legs. The 2 pullets pictured are a White d"Uccle and a Self Blue d'Uccle. [​IMG] one of my favorite breeds, they are so sweet!
