    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

    "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.

    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.

    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?[​IMG]

    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.
