The Belgian d’Uccle bantam chicken breed is one of our original favourites and one that we really enjoy showing. It took many years for us to acquire winning show stock that meets our criteria for the breeding pen. We have combined two lines of Porcelain d’Uccles , three lines of Mille Fleur and a show line of Mottled d’Uccles. This year we have decided to share our Mille Fleur Belgian d’Uccles with our customers but our flock is limited and so are our available eggs.

We find d’Uccles calm, easy to handle and they will even eat out of your hand. They can be raised in a mixed coop as they stand up well for themselves or in a confined cage environment. In chicken coops they will fly up to the top roosts, find niches or other larger birds to snuggle with. Some free range and others prefer the coop. D’ Uccles tolerant heat well and roosters can also live together in good harmony. They make excellent pets, show birds and broodies.

The Belgian d’Uccle  also known as the Barbu d’Uccle was created by Michael Van Gelder of Uccle, in the early years of the twentieth century. It was first shown in 1905. He crossed the Bearded D’Anver with feather footed bantams in an attempt to get a booted bird with white skin, a low posture, a compact and asymmetrical body, a full beard, and a single comb.

It was first shown in 1905. The American Poultry Association lists seven varieties: Black (1996), Golden Neck (1996), Mille Fleur (1914), Mottled (1996), Porcelain (1965), Self Blue (1996), and White (1981). The American Standard specifies an ideal weight of 26 oz (740 g) for cocks, 22 oz (620 g) for hens and cockerels, and 20 oz (570 g) for pullets.
