    Here is my beautiful hatchery stock Mille Fleur D'Uccle. Her name is Muffin. I'm very lucky to picked a female, since I only picked 1 out of 50-70 chicks.

    She is beautiful...I see you have other chickens but did you raise her as a single chick? Or were there other chicks the same age?

    Quote:I have one EE that hatched the same day as her. She was in a small flock of 5 in the brooder and I had 3 older chicks outside in the coop. I bring them in the house all the time to sit on our laps one at a time. Since I have 8 chicks, there's too many photo's to do a timeline of each chick.[​IMG] My Mille Fleur is the sweetest chick ever! I make a kissy noise and she comes running to me and flies up onto my shoulder.

    I do have pictures of my whole flock in my BYC page. [​IMG]

    That's awesome...love my girls and miss them being so young but now they are big fat ladies they still act like babies and follow me around and the moment I sit down they are up like a shot. Funny to see.

    Thinking about looking for some. Are they good layers and do they brood?

    They're fair layers and lay small eggs and can go broody.

    I just have them because they're so cute and loveable.

    They fit in my hand, so it is easy to carry one around while I do my rounds.

    Their eggs are really small. I don't know how often they lay yet. This is my first flock of chicks. I bought her for a pet mainly, she is extremely friendly. Whenever I'm in the coop, Muffin is the first chick to greet me and fly up into my lap and on my shoulders.[​IMG]
