    so this little guy wandered over the fields to our house yesterday, no idea who's he is or from which direction he came, but he seems in good health and is extremely tame.....
    so far no ones claimed him, but he's more than welcome to stay if we dont find his owner [​IMG]

    i thought he was a pekin, but he's a wee bit bigger than my other pekin roo's and hens but no where as near as a regular sized chicken, so a bantam of some sort......and i've not seen a pekin in that colour before, so perhaps a cross?

    Millie fleur is a color. It can come in several breeds. D uccle is a breed, not a color. I think you have it backwards!

    Or hopefully they had been mis informed also. Many times people refer to Belgian d'uccles as millie fluers. Maybe since the millie pattern is so popular.
