Disqualifications and Defects for the Belgian d'uccle bantam. D'uccles should have a straight firm comb with about 5 points.
Duccles should have a thick and full beard and muffs, absence of beard and/or muffs is a disqualification, They should also have an absence or very small wattles.Other disqualifications are ,severed wattles, squirrel tailed, and absence of vulture hocks which are basically featherless legs.
Bull neck and v shape in back are very important for body shape.
This is Oreo my Black Mottled d'uccle , he is a general description of what a d'uccles body shape should look like.other defects are , large wattles and ear lobes, and neck unduly long and too narrow.
The d'uccle is a four toed breed and should have four nice toes like this, also bare middle toe is a serious defect. All of my birds seem to not have any thing wrong except for Oreo who has too many complete white feathers.
