    I have been told both. How can you tell the difference?

    Well, even I'm not quite sure of the difference. In fact, I'm wondering if they are the same thing. All I know is that Gold Neck d'uccles seem more common. I've never heard of a Buff Mottled, but have heard of (and even seen) a Gold Neck d'uccle.

    That is a Goldenneck Belgian Bearded D'Uccle. Pretty bird!

    TY I saw pics of both on Feathersite and even though they have pictures of buff mottled and of gold neck, I can't tell the difference in the two colors.
    I bought her at a farm swap for $5.00. The man insisted it was a roo even after I asked him if maybe it was a hen. I loved the color so much I took it anyway. She laid an egg for me the next day. She hatched 13 out of 15 eggs for me recently and adopted 2 Sebright chicks to boot!

    I never knew there was a difference between buff mottled and goldenneck. They look the same to me... Maybe they're called by different names in various parts of the world?
