I ordered Blue Mille Fleurs and Ideal Poultry sent me these. They look nothing like the pics I can find online of Blue Mille Fleur and look like the Gold Neck D' Uccles I've have had in the past and can identify online. Am I just really off and these will end up looking like Blue Mille Fleurs? Their website states this regarding the coloring of Blue Mille "he blue (Bl) gene only has an effect on black plumage resulting in blue plumage when the blue gene is present in the heterozygous state (Bl bl). Other plumage colors are not affected by the blue gene. When blue (Bl bl) males are mated with blue (Bl bl) females, the ratio of colors produced is as follows: 1 black (bl bl), 2 blue (Bl bl) and 1 splash (Bl Bl) (white with a blue cast). Any blue variety ordered from Ideal Poultry may include chicks with black, blue or splash plumage patterns"
These birds have had neither blue, black or splash coloring! These are pics of the day they arrived and now 3 weeks old. They insisted that they were Blue Mille Fleurs.
And now at 3 weeks old.
