Are we Buff Brahmas or some weird cross?

    These two are about nine weeks old. About three weeks ago they began developing muffs (I think that's what they're called). Is that a Brahma trait? Or might they be crossed with something?

    They're true bantam Belgian d'Uccle, their coloring is Millie Fleur. They are the sweetest birds ever, generally very tame when worked with.

    I googled them and they sure do look like Millie Fleur Belgian d'Uccles. Thanks to all for your help in identifying them!

    I got them at a chicken swap from a breeder in the NH seacoast but she never said what they were. ChicknGurl, you are right, they are the sweetest. Not at all bossy like my two Cochin chicks or on the wild side like the two EE chicks.
