    Hey gang,

    This is my only Bantam Chicken, and I'm looking for a rooster to pair her up with. Anyone have anything that would be suitable for her?

    She sure is pretty! Now is she a d'Uccle and d'Anver cross, or is she pure d'Anver? I can sure see the 'quail' color coming through on her feathers, but she is still such a looker!

    She is a true D'Anver.. just a Millie Fleur color pattern. [​IMG]

    So is this a rather, uncommon, color for a d'Anver? Because I am having a heck of a time finding a male to match her with. I know I want to keep like colors together - so Quail is out.

    You can bred her with Quail male and breeding her son to her and her doghters will give you Mille Fleurs

    Quote:I had actually thought of using a Quail male with her, but when I had asked the question originally, it was suggested that I not do so because her offspring would essentially be "mutts", and worthless. [​IMG]
