    I got this lil guy with a "barnyard mix" of bantams, he is the only one in this color, is he just an easter egger mutt or is he a different breed that im not familiar with?

    I didn't think EE's had single combs, but I could be wrong.

    hmm not sure honestly, I think that the white one next to him in the one pic is an EE so I just figured he was as well, I never even noticed he has a different comb

    he could be one of the few ee's that have a straight comb (straight combs are not common on ee's)

    Neither of them look like EE's to me, maybe possibly d'Uccles, only b/c of the cheek puffs, but since they don't have feathered feet, I doubt it, at least not one gen back, maybe a grandparent or further back. I think d'Anvers is more likely with the muffs, rose comb (on the hen), and lack of feathered legs/feet. His coloring is definitely not mille fleur, though.

    The roo in the OP is red with random black splotches. Mille Fleur is red with nice even white tipped feathers with a black line between the red and white. If your d'Uccle looks just like his, then it isn't mille fleur colored either. mille fleur is a color, not a breed. [​IMG] You can have a d'Uccle that isn't mille fleur. They come in lots of colors. [​IMG] Not all are breed standard colors, though.
