    We were given some bantam sized eggs and 7 hatched. They all look similar when they first hatched with two small dots of brown behind their heads, and varying amounts of brown markings on their yellow fluff. The new feathers started coming through on day three and they are now nearly 3 weeks old. From the second day they have all been very bold and are quite independant in nature.
    I would love to know what breed/crosses they are, and what they might end up looking like. Any ideas?

    Mille Fleur D'Uccle. D'Uccle is the breed and Mille Fleur is the color pattern. They also come in Porcelain and other colors. Saw one yesterday at the feedstore, very friendly little cockerel.

    Thanks for your replies. The female in the first picture is our Mille Fleur, but these were not her eggs (these eggs were slightly buff coloured and a little larger than our Mille Fleur white eggs). We have had Mille Fleur chicks from her last year, and the chicks were very different to these. I am pretty sure that I didn't see any Mille Fleur chickens at the place where these eggs came from.
    Any ideas what the chicks could be?

    Maybe they are too young at the moment to guess the breed, I will post pictures of them when they are a little older.
