    Please help me determine breed and sex of my new Bantam chicks born 4/7/16. This is Peggy Sue and she sings ALL the time during waking hours. She has feathers on her feet and is now 3 weeks old. Can you please let me know what breed of Bantam she is and maybe what sex? We are hoping for a pullet.

    I would say Mille Fleur or blue Mille Fleur D'Uccle. I have one that looks literally the exact same as her. Mine is named Millie. I was told at first that Millie was a mille fleur, but then they told me they were almost positive she was a blue mille fleur, so yeah.

    Thanks! We had a grown Mille Fleur named Flower and she was beautiful with a very nice disposition... She is just getting used to her feet feathers and keeps pecking at them. I just hope she is a 'she'...

    This is Peggy Sue at 5 weeks... She is getting more friendly. We are hoping she is a girl still. What do you all think? I agree that she looks like a Mille Fleur.

    To young to say for sure but I think it still looks like a pullet.

    Woot woot... That is what we are praying for on all three of our new Bantam chicks. They would not sex the eggs so it was the luck of the draw!
