    Hi all! Come spring I will be getting some more bantams for my bantam coop. I love the mille fleur and porcelain color. So I thought I would order some bantams in that color, either Old English Game, or D'uccles. But I'm torn deciding which one! I think I'm leaning more towards the D'uccles though. Tell me which breed you prefer! [​IMG]Thanks!

    oegb for definite. I prefer the way they stand with an arrogant stance. Also I dont like the feathered legs of belgians.

    I have 7 oegb in my coop right now and I love them! They have a great personality! But I also personally like the D'uccles, so I'm definitely having trouble deciding.

    It's a tough one. Which lays more eggs?

    I'm not exactly sure, but I think the D'uccles lay more but are very broody. I may be wrong though??

    Did you get your D'Uccles yet? I happen to have both the D'Uccles in porcelain and the OEGB in porcelain.

    No I haven't gotten them yet. I can't find them anywhere! I am still searching for them! Where are you located if you don't mind me asking? Do you have any for sale? Thank you!
