    I am looking for some new breeds for 2013. I have/had Silkies, Crele OEGB, Mottled & Mille Fleur Cochins, and American Seramas. I want something different from what I have...any suggestions?

    I love my d'Uccles and Nankins!

    The Nankin roos were the most docile. The d'Uccle roos- 3 out of 5 started wing-dancing at me. No roos at the moment for me.

    They are very sweet and cute. Nankins are fast on their feet and the d'Uccles hop as they run. Sooo adorable. D'Uccles and Nankins tend not to wander far from the coop.

    That sounds like a winner! I will have to purchase a trio at the Gilmanor Swap!
