    I have 7 little Millies that are 3 weeks old. Mom is a D'uccle and dad is a OEGB Mille Fluer. 5 have combs and yellowish feet and 2 have kinda greenish feet and no combs. I think i have 5 roos and 2 girls. They all have feathered feet. My ? is why would they have differnt colored feet. I was also thinking that since dad does not have feathered feet that some would not.

    And that would be genetics for you!! Daddy has some and momma has some therefore the babies are a little of this and that. The leg feathering will be only partial as your picture shows, a typical mille will be feathered to the middle toe and your babies are feathered only down the outside leg and to the first toe. Etc. I'm sure they'll be super cute peeps though!!
