    They are Mille Fleur D'uccles, it looks like the hen in the first picture is sick.

    They are Mille Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccles. Judging by her coloring (they get whiter as they age), the hen looks rather old.

    They are Millie Fleur Belgian Bearded D'Uccles. As Bantamlover21 said, the hen is definitely at least a few years old. The rooster doesn't look quite as old, but I don't think he's under a year or so. Your hen looks like she might be sick.

    It started raining on the way home and we all got wet unloading everything. She is acting fine today and looks much better. The woman said the hen was last years hatch and the roo was this years.

    Here is a picture from just now, does she still look sick or was it just cause she was wet

    how do you all pronounce d'Uccle? I've heard it several ways, but the Belgians pronounce it like Doo-Klah, not so heavy on the "aaahh."

    Very hard to get used to since I always pronounced it Dee-you-kull
