I bought a pair of Mille Fleurs and a pair of Spangled chickens at a swap meet. I know this is dumb but are the spangled chickens just a variation of the regular Mille Fleurs or are they a breed in themselves? They are smaller than the Milles, but I'm thinking they just might be younger. Anyway they are all very awesome little birds!

Spangling is a presentation of a specific set of genes. It can occur in any breed who carries the spangling gene.

So to answer your question: no, it is not a breed. The chicken is some sort of breed, which is presenting spangling.

The spangled birds are a bit smaller, I'm not sure if they're Milles or not. I can always go back to the swap meet and ask the gentleman. That is if the weather holds out for Saturday. I live in rural Missouri and every Saturday there are Farmer's Markets and small animal swap meets. Unfortunately there seems to be thunderstorms and/or tornadoes too! Hi, XYZ:)
