    Hello,
    Has anyone ever raised Mille Fleurs? I was thinking about getting some and I was wondering if they make good companions? Are they very timid? Good broodies?

    Thanks,

    CFC

    Are you talking about the booted or d'uccles? I;ve had d'Uccles in the past. male was a little aggressive. The hens were quite timid. They were not broody.

    I have 3 mille fluers (1 roo 2 hens) the roo is somwhat agressive( he has an attatude:D )
    and the hens are rather shy but they are all very pretty. If you want a breed for companionship I would recomend quail antwerps as they are very friendly as my quail antwerp hen followes me all over my yard. [​IMG]

    Mine were really cool. My rooster wasn't in the slightest bit aggressive and the hens were really sweet. Really pretty birds and mine were pretty calm. If I had room for "fake chickens" (read: banties), I would still have them. [​IMG]

    I only have 3 d uccles. Two hens and a roo. They are friendly and nice little birds. The roo is not aggressive towards anyone and keep his distance from my standard size roos. They are not broody girls.
