    I have some Mille Fleur's but they aren't blue. I've actually never heard of blue Mille's. Could you possibly be wanting some Porcelain's instead? I am so going to get some of those this spring! They are gorgeous!

    Here is a few pics of my Mille Fleur d'Uccles.

    I am ordering Porcelain, Self Blue and Blue Mille Fleurs from Ideal and can't wait to see what the Blue Mille look like. Going by what the site says, the black on the normal Mille Fleur is replaced by blue. I hope they vary at least slightly from the 2 Mille Fleurs I got from Ideal last Sept.

    Feathersite only has pics of them at chicks, at the very bottom of the d'Uccle page.

    Quote:Well! Well! Well! I just went to Ideal's site to have a look at these birds and lo and behold, there they were! I didn't even know such a thing existed!!! They only show a drawing of them, but they look lovely. I would also be interested in seeing some pics of these birds. [​IMG]

    Yes I saw them on the site, only problem I had was the:

    Any blue variety ordered from Ideal Poultry may include chicks with black, blue or splash plumage patterns.

    at the end of description. I would be scared I would end up with all balck and splash and not any blue ones, thats just my luck. lol

    That will probably be my luck too lol Now I am thinking I should have ordered more than 3 of them to up my odds of getting some blue.

    Here's a pic of the blue Mille Fleur d'Uccles... It's hard to see the blue in this pic, but if you look closely, you can sort of see it.
