Admire the champagne gold beauty combined with a sweet disposition by adding a Porcelain D' uccle Bantam chick to your flock.  Porcelain plumage is indispensable for show and personality is a must for anyone who enjoys pet bantams.  A base of parchment feathers, individualy marked with a lavender blue crescent-moon, and tipped with a pale, gibbous spangle, make for a lovely dappled grey.  Their plumage glows like winter frosted wheat reflecting the moon light. 



Originiated from Belgium, the Porcelain d’Uccle Bantam was recognized by the American Poultry Standard of Perfection in 1965.  Roosters typically weigh 26oz and hens 22oz. Porcelain d’Uccle Bantams are shown in the Feather Legged Bantam Class and have a tendency to go broody. These rare birds are known for their distinct feathered legs, fluffy muffs, and full beards. The Porcelain is the rarer variety of Belgian Bearded d'Uccle. The more common plumage color is Mille Fleur. The Porcelain is similar to the Mille Fleurpattern, but with "diluting" genes, so that Porcelains are pale where Mille Fleurs are dark, and cool where Mille Fleurs are warm.  Their coloring gets more impressive as they mature.  It takes time to manifest their full beauty potential and usually appears more clearly after their first adult molt.


Eggs they will gift: 

Gifts 2-3 small cream tinted eggs a week



The fluffy beards of the Porcelains give them an air of shyness.  It is so delightful to discover how truly friendly they are. These chickens make for excellent show birds and make great friends on the farm. They are known for their docile nature. They are right sized for smaller children to show in 4H or keep as a pet. 


Sexing Method:

The only reliable sexing method is by investing in DNA sexing. Several communities have laws in which roosters are not allowed.  Thus, industry standard is to offer as a unsexed chicks as 50% or more will be roosters.  We are DIFFERENT because we care for the unwanted roosters and families that purchase from us.


We understand that several families live in areas where city ordinances do not allow roosters.  We provide the economical option of female coverage by giving the boy a home and providing store credit should you accidently get a rooster. If you do not want to risk falling in love with a chick that turns out to be a rooster, we also offer the option of DNA sexing services. DNA sexing is a significantly higher investment as cost averages 3x that of a female covered chick.

Chick: Porcelain D'uccle Bantam

PriceFrom $15.00
  • Most families are attracted to obtaining their chickens from us because we are proud to be completely different than typical feed store/ hatchery industry standards. Industry standard is to sex as accurately as possible and sell as pullets (female chicks) and force customers to accept a >10% chance of an accidental rooster without the ability to accept returns nor refunds. In addition, industry standard is to sell bantams (such as silkies) as straight runs since they are too small for safe vent sexing. We offer multiple sexing options.



    If you are lucky enough to have a rooster, our male sexing option is a great way to save money on a wonderful breed.



    This option means that the chicks have not yet been sexed and are sold as a straight run. While nature usually averages half girls and half boys in high volumes, families should only order if prepared for >50% possible roosters.


    Female Coverage

    This is our most economical choice for families seeking a female. We kept city ordinances that restrict rooster ownership in mind. This option is great for families that want to enjoy a backyard flock of ladies. We use traditional sexing methods on the breeds that capable of being vent sexed, home accidental roosters, and issue store credit of original purchased price. To learn more about how we sex baby chicks based on their breed view: How to Sex Chickens.


    Depending on the breed, sexing accuracy can range as low as 50% for bantam breeds, 90% for standard breeds, and as high as 95% for auto sexing breeds. Our female coverage option is not a service fee for sexing the chick, it is the cost difference between purchasing a male or a female chicken. We do not believe in grinding males alive nor suffocating them as day olds to enable a profit when selling a stated female chick at ridiculously low prices. Thus, our female pricing takes into consideration the male left behind with each female purchased. Male chicks are typically half the price of a female.


    To qualify for rehoming, the rooster must remain in perfect health. If the family decides to return the rooster, a store credit in the amount of original purchase price is provided. As a family, you are welcome to decide to keep any accidental rooster and forfeit the credit.


    DNA Sexed Female Chicks

    For families that get emotionally bonded quickly and do not want to risk a future discovery of a rooster, we offer DNA sexing. DNA sexing is the only true accurate method of sexing baby chicks. DNA testing is a significantly higher financial investment. In most cases, it is 3x the cost as (1) female sex covered chick.



    Balance accuracy with financial investment

    The sexing decision is one that needs to be made at time of purchased and the original order cannot be altered once the order is fulfilled. It is important as a family to determine the right balance between sexing accuracy and financial investment for your family’s situation.


    We provide as much information on our website as possible to ensure families make an informed decision based on their situation and lifestyle. Some breeds are more accurate in sexing and most families find our female coverage adequate in providing a free home for their accidental rooster (up to $100 savings) and use the store credit towards a replacement or our organic feed. While harder to sex bantam breeds, or families that know they will develop a with strong emotional attachment prefer to invest in DNA sexing.
