The Chook Shed  

An excellent Australian site, with a wide range of pictures and information on all things "chook".  Also has a Breeder's Directory and links to other sites. 

Genetics of Chicken Colours 

This is a brilliant book and a definite "must have" for any serious breeder who is interested in the genetics which define colour.  It covers everything and has plenty of photos to go with the text to make it so easy to read and understand.

Backyard Poultry is Andy Vardy's fabulous site.  It has a heap of information, photos, a forum, noticeboard and links, etc, etc, etc.  There is something for everyone here.   The site is dedicated to promoting and preserving backyard poultry throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Poultry Pals  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 anywhere.

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.

It is an  organization dedicated to creating de Watermael in the U.S. and Canada and maintaining genetically diverse flocks along with the  keeping, breeding and exhibiting of de Watermael.  They don't have a website but do have a chat room with information, articles and photographs.

Unfortunately this link is no longer active but it can stay here for now - just in case.


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.


There is a brilliant German site located at   If you click on Bildergalerie that will take you to the picture gallery.  The birds are superb, and in colours we can only dream about.  Unfortunately all the text is in German, but maybe your computer can translate enough of it to make some sense of the other pages.  The photos alone are worth a look.

Christian Miniot has a good site with lots of photos.  Unfortunately the text is in French, but it is still  worth a look.  It is found at

Here is one  is well worth a look.  It is a private American site for the d'Anvers called Rancho Rosita and has some lovely photos and other bits and pieces on it.  Go to

It contains an enormous amount of information.  The purpose of this site is to promote and facilitate poultry keeping through the understanding of poultry genetics. Hopefully, poultry enthusiasts will find this site useful.  Go to

Go to and follow the links to the appropriate pages.

Chickenbreeds  This is Joke Osinga's site from the Netherlands. Has a lot of information on various breeds and some very good photos.


This is a good site to browse through, no matter what type of poultry you are interested in.  It is a very large, well established site with a bit of everything - photos, articles, books, technical information on all types of poultry, waterfowl, swans, guinea fowl, pheasants, etc.  It also has links to many other good poultry sites.

The Bantam Roost  This is an American site run by Dick Staie and Terry Towe which has many photos of d'Uccle bantams, including some colours we don't have in Australia.  There are also nine good articles relating to breeding Belgian Bantams.  Also features a lot of links to various other sites, including a whole section on "chicken tractors".

Merck Veterinary Manual  This is a comprehensive veterinary manual for all types of animals, not just poultry.  Well worth a look if you have any medical problems. It has just been updated and now has a host of coloured photos as well.

The A-Z Poultry Disease Index  This is an A-Z list of poultry diseases.  If you know what disease you are looking for there is a search engine, otherwise you can just browse the pages.  I gives a short resume of each disease.  Handy if you are not sure what you are looking for as it doesn't take that long to get through the whole thing.

Aviculture Magazine has an enormous amount of information and articles available on-line (and in English).  It is one of the world's best rated magazines.
