    Would I get a Mille Fluer Blue bearded bantam if I crossed this? I was going to try and put some colors together and was wondering how that all worked with the blue ones.

    You'd get blue mille fleur (just the black parts would be blue) and normal mille fleur but without good coloring since you're breeding a solid to a colored variety, so you wont get as many spangles or anything.

    So I guess this would just be a hit and miss kind of thing, huh? I was just thinking I would like to get some different colors. If I bred a blue mille fleur to a regular mille fluer would I get all the spangles still?

    Yes, you'd get half mille fleur and half blue mille fleur.
