    correct, wasn't sure if it was just darker shading or a hatchery chick? It was the only breed that has muffs, feathered feet that happened to be French. I could be wrong, you have any ideas? I certainly am no expert and there are sooooo many breeds. I just blurted out the first thing that came to mind. [​IMG]

    Nah, I'm with you....Faverolle came to my mind too....but the black threw me off....

    Still....could be. I got a couple of hatchery Favs that have some dark feathering on them....not black, but dark.... :-(((

    Pictures will/would help....

    Its not a french breed, it was belgium.

    She has a Mille Fleur d'uccle, she has three threads going about the same chickens and asking the same exact questions. I saw the picture in the last thread and answered her question.Twice now.
