    Someone earlier posted a topic asking about Mille Fleur Leghorns. I didn't want to hijack their post.

    I love the mille fleur coloring but I'm not a fan of beards, muffs or feathered legs. Do the mille fleur leghorns have the mille fleur coloring without all the extra accessories? Or am I totally off base in my thinking? Feel free to help me correct my ignorance if I am mistaken.

    The pattern on the mille fleur leghorns isn't completely perfected yet. There are mille fleur old english. They've got the pattern without the beards, muffs, or feathered legs.

    I'll try to get some pics of my mille fleur leghorns over the weekend. They are very pretty, but mine are not mature yet so their plumage is still developing. HBuehler also has some, but I don't know whether she has adults or not. Maybe she'll also see this thread!
