The Belgian Bearded d’Uccle Bantam has a few fancy feathering features that make it aesthetically appealing and rewarding to raise.
The d’Uccle Bantams have full beards and muffs along with their feathered feet, and it’s these features along with their beautiful color patterns that make this breed such a joy to own as well as a success at poultry shows. For a bantam breed, the Belgian Bearded d’Uccle Chicken is a good layer of small bantam sized white eggs.
