Barbu d’Uccle Character
Barbu d’Uccles are very timid and delicate little birds. They are friendly and docile and do like people but it may take a little longer to gain their trust. They are petite birds with bearded muffs under their chins and fully feathered feet. Sweet an inquisitive they will thrive in an environment with not too much competition. They are very similar to a Bantam Faverolles or a Bantam Polish, they cannot be mixed with all bantams and should be handled with care. Because of their timid nature they should never be mixed with large hybrids or Pekin Bantams.
Although they require a little more care and a calmer environment they are such rewarding little chickens and once tamed will make excellent companions.
