    Mille Fleur is a color and pattern and can occur in many breeds, but the breed most referenced with that color is the d'Uccle. They are small, very friendly birds kept more for pets than egg production.

    Bantams should all be small, but there are some that are bigger than the Old English. Sizes vary even within a breed, so it's going to be hard to predict the exact size of your chicks.

    So Millie Fluer old English game and Millie Fleur d'Uccle are totally different except the color. I ordered both from two different hatcheries. I'm hoping the old English millies will be smaller. I just noticed the spelling of their names is different on the conformation emails.
