Buckaboo D’uccles

Hi Buckaboo friends! Your chicks or eggs can be reserved by ordering them online. I do not take waitlists, except for DNA tested silkies and satins, so if you’d like to adopt the bird or birds we’ve discussed please order them when I send you the link or at least within the day. I do my best to keep track of all the conversations I get to have with all my favorite chicken people, but my brain can’t quite remember them all. I also have hundreds of inquiries and many people changing their minds, so I don’t generally hold birds, unless you’ve paid for them. Once you’ve ordered online we can arrange a time for pick up!

We are very excited to offer d’Uccle chickens in multiple fun colors! These little ones are just the cutest chickens ever…well, it’s a toss up with silkies, I think. All of our d’Uccle roosters are named Lord Farquaad, because they maintain all of the personality traits of a cocky rooster, but are about 1/5 the size of our largest rooster (see pic below). The d’Uccle chicken does lay cream eggs, but they are really considered an ornamental breed, because the eggs are tiny and they don’t lay very many. The girls will lay about 100/year. I recommend these chickens if you really are looking for sweet pets. They are known for being snuggly and sweet!

Buckaboo Farm offers d’Uccle Pullets for those of you who really only want to keep hens.  The price varies based on how old they are when you bring them home. Living in Southern California means there are lots of people and neighbors around, who do not want to listen to the song of the male chicken people, so we understand that most of our customers only want girls!  The younger pullets should not be put in a coop with older birds until they’re big enough to be safe with the full grown ladies.  Some of the 1-2 month olds will also still need a heat source, especially at night, depending on the weather. I like to keep my grow outs that are big enough to be out of a brooder, but too small to be let loose in the yard, in a coop next to the older chickens, with a heat plate or lamp that I can plug in at night.  That way when they transition into the flock they’re already fairly used to each other.  Check out How to Raise Chickens for more information! I will be adding more articles as soon as possible!

Please note that bantam chickens, like d’Uccles and silkies, do not always do well with a full sized flock. If you plan on adding these cuties to your full sized flock we recommend having a back up plan, because you may need to keep them separate.

Eggs and chickens are counted as in stock if I believe they will be available within the next few weeks, but I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch,” right!? Well I can’t count my straight run chickens before they hatch, and I also can’t count my females for most breeds even after they hatch for at least a few weeks. I will do my best to fill orders asap, but need a bit of flexibility with timing! If a particular breed is not currently in stock you can ask to be added to the waitlist for hatching eggs or chicks up to the 4-8 weeks old age range. At this time we do not have waitlists for 9-15 week olds, or laying pullets, but please check back periodically to see if we have them in stock! Please let me know if you run into any problems with online ordering, and also feel free to reach out with any questions or requests. You can text or email Tiffany at 949-922-1373, or Tiffany@buckaboofarm.com. Local pickup is free, and shipping for eggs is $30/dozen. We do ship chicks, as well. The cost for shipping live birds is $60 within California, or $75 within the continental US to cover postage and supplies.
