I have a pair I got them as chicks
i thought "MILLE FLEUR" is a COLOR,, not a breed..
i have millefleur d uccle,, that looks similar to mine, but that rooster has allot of white...
someones else will have a better answer
there is duccles and booted bantams and yours is a booted the is no beard and he doesnt look full mille fleur either it look half mille fleur and half golden neck
"Mille fleur" means a thousand flowers in French. It's a color in chickens, and it occurs in many breeds.
Nevertheless, Mille Fleur is a common name for d'uccles, because they often come in this color.
That's a beautiful pair of chickens!
oh well I was hoping they were pure blooded. But I still love them. their one of my prettys birds I have. And I love the color they came out as. I bought them up at an Auction for 60 Cents each.
there pure blood but i would have to see them in person to tell the might be mille fleur with to much white in them though i would have to see them...
Quote:I'm curious how you figure he's a millie-gold neck cross?
pidgey - what you've got are the booted bantams. they have a slighty different build to them and lack the muff feathers entirely. They are not nearly as common as the d'uccle.
golden necks are red with white tips on there feathers and there is a lot of buff red and to much white
Quote:that is a good point, however its my opinion that he is nothing more than a lightly colored millie fluer. reason being is that a golden neck is nothing more than a millie fluer with a shot of the dominant white gene. however, he may have some gold neck in him but lacks the proper gene for the dominant white yet retained some sort of modifiers that lighten his overall color. always fun trying to figure this sort of stuff out eh?
It's hard to tell with only that one pic being supplied. Here is a pic of my Mille Fluer d'Uccle, so that will help you be the judge as to what he is.
