    hi friends--

    new to having chickens and new to this forum-- what a great resource this is!

    i've got four chickens--- austrolorps, EE, SLW-- thinking about the Mille Fleur at some point.

    I was wondering--- how do standard breed size birds get along with bantam size?

    I think the Mille Fleur is so beautiful! We'd love to have a few-- is there anything I need to know about them in terms of keeping them with larger birds?

    Where is the best place to get them?

    Are there different kinds of Mille Fleur?

    thank you so much!

    Mille fleur is the color pattern, not the breed. That color pattern comes in different breeds and sizes.

    Quote:There is a Mille Fleur D'Uccle. However, many of us are working on a Mille Fleur Bantam Cochin Project. If you go to this link & start at the beginning, you will be able to read & see pics of this project.
