    I have a chick that's starting to show what I think is mille fleur coloring.... now how can I tell if it's a chochin or d'uccle? It's only around a week or week and a half old and has heavy foot feathering. Thanks!

    prob a d.uccle but don't be surprised if its a cochin because cochins are a lot more common
