    Good Afternoon Everyone!!

    After sleeping all day because of a migraine [​IMG] I am feeling much better [​IMG] though still a little blah... [​IMG]

    So I have a question for you, I know you are not supposed to have favorites, but my favorite from our first batch of chickens we believe to be a Mille Fleur D'uccle.

    I believe Marilyn is a pullet, and I was wondering what your thoughts were. We have had her for 9 weeks, and we believe she was about 1-2 weeks old when we got her. So lets say 10-12 weeks old.

    Here's a picture.... can anyone confirm that she is in fact a she?

    Please let me know...

    If anyone has any pictures of a pullet or a roo that would be nice to see, what way I know for sure what's going on here.

    Thank you

    Awwww she looks just like my favorite Mille! I'm pretty sure you have a nice young lady there. My roo's comb appeared pretty early and the rest look like yours!

    ETA: Glad you're feeling better!

    I can't be absolutely sure but I am 95% certain it is a mille fleur hen. However I am not sure it is a d'Uccle because mille fleur occurs in other breeds.

    Quote:It looks to have feathered feet, so I would say that it is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle hen.

    Thank you, she's very picture friendly unlike some of the other ones who move as soon as they see the camera.

    YAY, a girl... that's good because her name is Marilyn, and if she were a boy then she'd have a complex from having a girls name ever since she got to our house. LOL
