    Hi,

    I'm having trouble uploading a picture... is the description enough? If you have any ideas, it would give me a starting place...

    Does anyone recognize this breed? He came from a local feed store, which gets their chicks from Murray McMurray, I believe.
    - 18 month old bantam rooster
    - body feathers are deep burnt orange with lots of white speckles
    - saddle feathers have thin black stripes
    - regular, not pea comb
    - tail feathers are black with green iridescence, pretty long and curly
    - fairly aggressive and territorial
    - feather footed

    Sounds like a Mille Fleur Belgian d'Uccle. Do a search on here and look at some other BYC'ers pics of them or look it up on Feathersite.com.

    Yep, I'd agree with that.
