    THis is my 4 week old roo.. he's started to develop mille fleur coloring.. but I'm not sure on the breed. Are D'Unccles the only breed that is mille fleur?

    Maybe it's a Dutch one? I think d'Uccles have feathered feet?? But I'm not 100% sure....

    He resembles my millies, but for sure they have massive foot feathering! Maybe he's a mix with one? No clue, but he is cute!

    Thanks guys!! He is sooo sweet!! He's my chick that loves to sit in my lap when we let them play outside, or up on my shoulder when he can. He peeps really loudly when he can't see me from the perch in his brooder, and as soon as I take the screen off the top of the brooder, he's trying to fly up to get me. His name is Robinhood.. I'll wait a few more days and take another pic, and see what develops~~

    ohh, and mmajw, he doesn't have face tufts.. do they have bantam EE? I would LOVE to have one if they do! THey are so cute with their puffy cheeks!

    Not a d' Uccle, they have feathered feet. I agree with greenmulberry, could very well be a sussex.
