    I have a good start with Millie Fleur cochins, but are there some serious Millie Fleur Cochin breeders out here who can help me to improve their color. I am not good with genetics and such, and could really use some education when it comes to these matters. I just love this color but feel that there is still room for improvement. Does the mottled cochin play a role in this color? I would like to see a little more black on them.

    The mille fleur color is related to the molted color, in the sense that their background/actual base color is different but still have the tipped white feathers. Does that make sense?
