    I thought Porcelain, but someone recently says that doesn't happen until the 2nd generation. So, I guess you get 50 millies/50 self blue? Not sure.

    Quote:Picture of a Porcelain D'uccle? Feathersite should have one. I hope I was clear, I meant that 50% of the chicks would be Millie, and the other 50% would be self blue chicks. [​IMG]

    You'd get millie offspring but with more black and less spangling, because it'd be like breeding a millie to a black. But the offspring will carry self blue, and if you breed them to each other then you'll get some porcelain and some mille fleur.

    I have millies that I breed but I am getting self blue, porcelain and white. I wonder what happens mixing all those to my Mille roo! I have to do some research too. I've enjoyed your thread so far.
