    is there a difference in looks between an incomplete mille fleur and a regular mille fleur?

    Well, in the chicken calculator when I'm figuring out the offspring of a cross it comes up with incomplete mille fleur and then just plain 'ol mille fleur - it shows in the genotypes AND phenotypes.

    incomplete probably refers to the Columbian gene, Co/co+ instead of Co/Co.
    It would show the most on the hens (more black pattern on back).
    Also the groundcolor (gold) could be paler.
