D'Uccles are my favorite breed

D'Uccles are the best chickens that I have had. They are very sweet and have absolutely amazing personalities! My d'Uccles run to me whenever they see me and I have one that will look up at me and bawk until I pick her up. They will all let me pick them up, even the roosters are sweet! If you are looking for a meat bird or a bird with high egg production, d'Uccles are not for you. If you are looking to show or have them as pets then they are perfect for you! D'Uccles lay a small cream colored egg about every other day. They are NOT good meat birds at all because they are so small. Since they are so small they don't eat as much as larger breeds. D'Uccles are very beautiful and come in a lot of varieties such as mille fleur, porcelain, white,black,brown red,buff columbian,blue mille fleur, golden neck, blue mottled, black mottled,self blue, and other colors. The most common colors are mille fleur and porcelain. I got my first d'Uccles from Cackle Hatchery. That's when I fell in love with the breed. I highly recommend d'Uccles and they are great with children!!! My website:
