    ?????? To be a "Frizzle"...he'd have to have curled feathers.....he looks like a regular Self Blue d"uccle to me.....I had the breed for about 30 years.....a Frizzle d"uccle would be nice though.....I'd love to see a photo of one....

    no hes not a frizzled but i had a comment from someone thinking it would be cruel to have them in frizzling because of their foot feathers. this pic is just showing what a d'uccle looks like for those who have never seen them before.

    * note he is hatchry quilty and i have 2 sq chicks

    Oh...OK..... Back in the 40's and 50's there was a wonderful strain of Frizzled Mille Fleur d"Uccles.....I use to have photos...if I find them...I'll share. There are Frizzled Cochins......and they seem to get by OK with frizzled feathered feet......(?) I say.....breed what YOU want!!! I'd love to see ANY photos if you do decide on this project.....Good Luck!!!

    Quote:thats what i was thinking when that comment was posted, what about the other feather footed breeds. i would share pics. i just dont know which breed to use. i dont want to get to far off from the d'uccles. i was thinking serma's maybe.
