    I realize that Spangled and Mille Fleur are color patterns, not breeds, but I didn't know where else to post! So, what is the difference between the two colorings?

    The OEGB spangled that I've seen were deep red(Like Rhode Island) with spots/spangles and including green in the darker feathers. Mille Fleur color was lighter golden/red brown with significantly more spotting -much more flashy. You can probably go to feathersite and plug mille fleur and spangled into their search to get a better idea of the colors/patterns.
