    They are gorgeous!!

    I think that I see the start of some saddle feathers on the first one but I am sooo not an expert.

    I am sure someone else will be by too [​IMG]

    They're both girls, but they aren't Millie Fleur D'uccles. They look like Quail Belgium bearded D'anver Bantams Hens. [​IMG]

    Both girls. They don't look like my Mille Fleur though. Mine has white in his spots.

    Wrong comb for that though. D'anvers have rose combs.
    But the color sure does look right on. Maybe a cross with something else.​

    Yes, it looks like a comb. So probably a mix.

    There are no White specks on those two, maybe poor quality or some type mix. My cockeral had a really red comb by six weeks, and much larger than the ones pictures.

    No d'anvers; these have foot feathers; d'anvers do not. D'anvers also have a rose comb.

    I think you are right about them being quail, though.​
