    Are Mille Fleur D'uccles and Millie Fleur Cochins the same breed?
    I couldn't find Mille Fleur D'uccles under the breed section so I was just wondering!
    Thanks!

    No they are not. Mille Fleur is a variety that many breeds (such as Cochins and D'Uccles) come in.

    Nope. Mille Fleur is a color pattern. Cochins and D-Uccles are separate breeds. If you good mille fleur d'uccle you will get plent of images. MF D'Uccles have been around for a long time. The mille fleur pattern is new to Cochins and still a work in progress. Here are some of the mille fleur Cochins:

    Mille Fleur is a color or variety not a breed.

    d'Uccles and Cochins are 2 breeds that are very different. The Mille Fleur Color also comes in several other breeds including Booted bantams, Old english game Bantams, and some others.
