    Hi Everyone

    I bought this little guy a while back( sold as a pekin) but doesn’t appear to be one.
    Would anyone know what breed he is?
    Looks kind of like a Belgium D’Uccle
    To me.

    Looks like a Belgian D’Uccle but I’m not an expert

    Very well could be a Blue d'Uccle.

    that looks like a blue belgian d'Uccle.
    Not a common color in d'Uccle. You lucked out!

    On second thought, he does look suspiciously like there is some silkie in his ancestry since his comb is so dark. It may just be the lighting. It looks lighter in another pic.

    That’s what I thought at first but he looks so much like a pure D’Uccle.

    All the signs of a pure d'Uccle are there. Single comb, feathered legs, beard and muffs, vulture hocks
