I have these 4 Mille Fleur OEGB cockerals and I like these little guys so much I am considering keeping at least one and possibly starting a breeding/showing program. These were hatched in early March. For showing purposes, which one looks to have better markings. I know they will have to be dubbed, I have never done that before and am looking for someone to teach me.
(I am kinda dreading that part)

I don't know if Mille OEG ae the same as the Mille bantams, but with my Mille bantams, their color gets better as they mature. Yours have good colors for being just 3 mo old. I like the white on the tips of the tails. My husband dubs all of our OE. It's a touchy subject with some people, so I won't get into that except to say that OE are easy to do. You might as well try it, couldn't be any harder than silkies!! LOL

I'm no expert, but I would keep #3. His tail is still coming in, but he's shaped nicely and has white tips on his tail. His color is looking pretty good, too.

The one I would definitely get rid of would be #2. He just has too much black on him for my taste.

Thanks for the replies! This is the first time I have had OEGB and I have to say they are just sweetest, friendliest little guys. I really have enjoyed them.
