    They're mille fleur d'uccles, they're just hatchery quality and that's why the hen ended up without muffs and a beard. *shrug*

    Cute birds! But I also think they are just hatchery quality. Where are you located? I do have chicks available from show quality stock. [​IMG]

    Hi Rob and Kathy,

    I am in Virginia. I see you are from Indy. I grew up from just NE of there, Marion and Muncie and in between. lost of family there.

    these little D'uccles are sort of hard to comby down here, would be nice to get a couple "show girls" to beef up the genes here. but i am not looking to show them. my primary flock are the millie cochins /calico cohins

    V/r
