    Are these chickens Mille Fleur d'uccle? Someone gave 4 of these to my Chicken Friend, Next Door Neighbor and he is unsure what they are. He thinks they are Mille Fleur D'uccle's. What are they?

    I'm no expert, but there should be leg feathers if they are D'Uccle.
    It looks very dark for Mille Fleur patterning, too. I have one like that, she was born very black.
    Bearded is correct.
    They are very handsome birds. [​IMG]

    They're beautiful Russian Orloffs.


    Generally speaking the only true difference between this color and Millie Fleur is that Orloffs have Mahogany in them, Millie Fleurs are just a standard spangled bird.
