    I just wanted to confirm that these two pullets were d'uccles, the one looked like a mille fleur as a chick, but she does not have any coloring to her. The other looks like a blue to me but I just wanted to hear from someone with experience lol. Thank you in advance!

    Yes! One is a Mille Fleur D'uccle and the other looks to be a Porcelain D'uccle. I raised about 7 Mille Fleur D'uccle and that's exactly what they looked like. They didn't get their speckles until later. :)

    This is my girl and what yours should look similar to! :) I don't remember when she got her speckles but I do remember that it took a while and I was very impatient!

    YAY! thank yall so much I am so excited I have wanted a mille fleur forever and inadvertently bought one at tsc. I told her to just pick me out five Bantams and I wound up with these two in the mix. I cannot wait for her speckles to come in!

    I just wanted to update yall.... I name the little Mille Fleur.... Miss Millie! She is now starting to grow in her little spots, so for anyone who may stumble upon this thread and wonder when mille fleurs get their speckledy spots.... they start at about 9-10 weeks, at least for Miss Millie!

    Yes, you're correct about what breed they are. They're both pullets. A Blue and a Mille Fleur d'uccle Bantam. :)

    Here are some pictures of Miss Millie :) She seems to get a new spot every day! They are not coming in very fast, but at least they are on their way! I really lucked out with both my d'uccles being pullets, the other 3 bantams I got were all boys!
