    Mille fleur is just the coloration/pattern, it is present in many breeds. What breed are you speaking of? I do not show but love love love my flock. I am the "crazy chicken lady" in my town so I understand the passion.

    Not a problem with learning at all. This is a wonderful forum for that. Like I said mille fleur is the color, many different breeds have the coloration mille fleur. And some people/ places confuse others by calling a breed mille. Here is one of my Belgian D'uccle's in the mille fleur

    Porcelain is porcelain. I love that color too.
    All cochins are feather footed, I love the feather footed breeds. This little hen is a feather foot breed. Some people call the D'uccle a mille and that is how they confuse people. some people dont know that it is just a coloration and the breed is a belgian bearded D'uccle. The link you provided shows porcelain D'uccles. Even looking it up online you can search mille fleur and find the d'uccle. It is a pet peeve lol. Now that you have this info you can better look for the breed and coloration you want.

    Thank you. I love D'uccles. I have a buff columbian D'uccle also. the breed is super tiny and very feathered.
