Have the chance to get this turken/ bantam cochin cross, but I have 2 questions....

1. At around 6 weeks, what are the chances this is a pullet

2. The breeder believes it will be mille fleur coloring, but I know that feathers change often before adult coloring comes in. Is this likely to be a mille fleur?

Not the best pictures, but all I have. Thanks!

No clue, sorry. Pattern is similar to mille fleur.

She could get some more black and white speckling with future molts. But I doubt she ever gets to be a true millie fleur pattern.

Ok great, thanks for your help! I know the mille fleur pattern isn't as well established in bantam cochin and that's what the rooster was. Hen was a naked neck, not sure on color though

Meh. You never know. But I’m leaning towards no.
See MF looks more like this: A6866B5B-E54C-44FB-BA53-657505C57C3C.jpeg 3543D651-FCB1-4DA4-8789-4E0CF4068741.jpeg
And on a chick: (the offspring of these 2 above)

I’m not seeing these colors, so I am unsure here. Look more like orange with a few dots of black. 🤷🏼‍♀️
