Thank you Rachel, lovely ideas. When we first started with chickens we were given 2 Speckled Sussex hens. They were lovely and very sweet to us but a bit bossy to the other chickens. I loved their coloring. And the Orloff, I was just looking at them recently too.For a similar appearance (but a very different genetic make-up,) see the Speckled Sussex and birds like the Spangled Orloff, and the new Jubilee Orpingtons. These are various tri-color patterns, but based on mahogany instead of the buff of the Mille Fleur. There are other subtle differences, but IMO the general effect is very similar and attractive.
