Poultry Pals http://www.poultrypals.com.au/ has been breeding
poultry for a number of years, but in 2007 established Poultry Pals Pty
Ltd. We are passionate about poultry, especially rare and endangered
breeds. All of our poultry are bred according to the Australian Breed
Standard and we continually show our poultry successfully. We have many rare breeds and colours with a full list and pictures in our fowl pages. Poultry make very good pets. They are low maintenance compared to many
other pets with the added bonus of the freshest eggs you will find
We believe that everyone can do their part in protecting these breeds and other pure bred varieties by purchasing a few for their back yard. All breeds will lay eggs and many of the pure bred types still lay close to those that are sold commercially. The difference is, if you own pure bred fowl you are doing your part in conservation as well as getting fresh eggs and love from a wonderful pet. We hope you spend some time looking through our site and please email us if you have anything at all to say.

We hope you enjoy your visit and come back often. We have a discussion board for any questions you might have or answers to questions. It's a great way to keep in touch and meet new friends. The Belgian d'Uccle and Booted Bantam Club, a non profit organization, was founded in the United States in 1956. The Founding member named the Club the "International Mille Fleur Bantam Club" By the 1960's the name was just "Mille Fleur Bantam Club" In the late 1960's or early 1970's the name was again changed and we became: The Belgian d'Uccle and Booted Bantam Club.
These are the three websites by Jeroen Muys There are some superb photos on them
http://watermaalsebaardkrielen.webs.com - for the de Watermael
http://antwerpsebaardkrielen.webs.com - for the d’Anvers
http://ukkelsebaardkrielen.webs.com - for the d’Uccle
are currently two Facebook Groups specific to Belgian bantams.
The first is Belgian Bearded Bantams, which is an open group with members from all over the world (firstname.lastname@example.org) and was set up by the European fanciers. The photos are superb and there is a lot of information exchanged.
The second is Belgian Bearded Bantam Poultry Australia
and is a closed group (which means you have to ask me to join you up). Initially is was only for the d'Uccle, but has now been expanded to include the d'Anvers and de Watermael as well. This is NOT an official Club group but it does have lovers of Belgian
bantams as members. It was started by Erik Pedersen simply because he
loves the breed. Since then at least half a dozen of the group have joined the Belgian Bantam Club (so that is good too).
Dobson has set up a website showing the range of poultry cages he
has been building for his own use and is now offering for

The photos alone are worth a look.
