    Looks very possible but not sure here. It's ADORABLE, whatever it is![​IMG]

    Are you asking about the color pattern or breed? Mille Fleur is a color pattern, not a breed.

    If it isn't a breed, I'm clearly asking about the color pattern.


    To clarify, I posted a video. Also to clearify, I am wondering if they are Mille Fleur d'Uccles.

    I posted this same question last week when I picked mine out of the bantam bin and yours look exactly like mine. [​IMG] Mine didn't have puffy cheeks, but the rest was all there. I was told to watch for "vulture hocks", which are feathers growing out of the back of their upper legs. Mine are beginning to grow these feathers so I am officially calling them Mille Fleur D'Uccles! [​IMG] They are too cute!

    They're D'Uccles, but not Mille Fleurs.

    Thanks! IN the video they mention that they are "bearded", but all chicks look so similar yet so different, it is hard for me to tell.​

    Yes, someone posted that hatchery stock chicks don't always have this facial feathering. I looked around the different websites like you did and that was the closest match. I am so looking forward to watching them grow! We will have to post updates!
