Beautiful chicken breed, but not very productive.

The Belgian Bearded d'Uccle - or 'Ukkelse baardkriel' in Dutch is a beautiful chicken breed of my home country.

They are nice, friendly and social chickens that come with a great temperament. You can easily hold them, pet them and cuddle them. They won't bite!

You can let the chickens loose in your backyard, because they are unlikely to damage your garden or run away.

They have got a beautiful, stunning appearance, but are quite small. Also, they aren't very productive. They lay about one egg, which are very small compared to regular eggs, in three days.

You'll want to buy this breed if you are looking to have some life in your garden, not if you want to produce a lot of biological eggs.
