    Hi,
    A lady is giving me a pair of Mille Fleur Banties, they are 3 years old she said. I have never had these before, what do you think of this breed are they friendly etc.
    Anyone have any pics they would share?

    Thanks!

    Mille Fleur is the color not the breed. Do you know what breed they are?

    I don't jhave them yet, she is going to bring them on Saturday, I think she just said Mille Fleur banties. It isn't that important I just thought I'd ask you guys! [​IMG] Maybe I will call her and ask, if I can't stand the not knowing! [​IMG]

    in my experiance if someone says mille fleur they generally mean d'uccles, though there are several breeds that are available in the mille fleur coloring.

    if they are d'uccles, i have a trio, but i bought them from a show breeder with tons of birds, so they were not handled and are not "friendly", they will run if i go in the pen and avoid me. but they aer beautiful birds and i quite enjoy them none-the-less
