I used to raise silkies but lost my flock last year to predators. We have fixed the problem as well as fixed the coops so it won't happen again. I will start a new flock this year and as a compromise with my husband we are going with millie fleur and d uccles. (he doesn't like the foo foo chickens.) First question, I know with silkies each pen had to be color coordinated... is this the same way with these birds? or can I house different colors together and still work to show? Is there a decent market for the eggs and older birds when it comes to these birds? Is there a difference between millie fleur and d uccles? the names seems to interchange a lot. Pictures of show quality birds would be great so I know what to look for when I get my stock. Thanks in advance for all answers.
