After getting the Welsummers and Orloffs, we decided we wanted to venture into the world of bantams. We looked around at what was available and ultimately decided we wanted something that was potentially broody, had a good temperament, and could do well in local shows. The D'uccles had the carriage and type we liked as well as beards and a good range of colors represented locally. At this time we are limiting ourselves to the mille fleur color. We have lines from Red Roof Hens, a local show breeder, and another local enthusiast. We hope to have a solid show line in the not too distant future.
