    I no longer have this little guy- coons got him last year. I never knew what he was. (before I found BYC!)
    Just happened to find these pics:

    Millie fleur D'uccle, and blue quail d'anver mix.

    Or just a blue quail D'uccle...

    If he were a d'anver cross, he would most likely have a rose comb, as single comb is recessive. He was a d'uccle, probably a hatchery blue mille fleur.

    If he was mille fleur- wouldn't he have white on him? The woman I got him from hatched him. They have several japs & bantam game breeds. I always wondered if he was a cross of some kind.

    Maybe this will help- you can see his colors better:

    I used to think he was a Nankin.

    It's some kind of d'Uccle or d'Uccle cross.
