    I am interested in buying some mille/blue mille fleurs d'uccles and was wondering if anyone could point me in the way of a good hatchery? Thanks [​IMG]

    I just placed a order with cackle for some porcelion and self blue d'uccles. The birds I got from them last year was great qualty. I reccommend them.

    Ideal poultry has excellent stock that are hardy and very, very pretty. I got some mille fleur d'uccles, silkies, and partridge and gold-laced cochins from them this year...gorgeous! I didn't even need to get terramycin for this batch! VERY healthy.

    I dealt with one hatchery before called Estes...over $100 (yes, I know,) of chickens DEAD in less than a week. [​IMG] I called them to get replacements, and 3/4 of the replacements died in a week, too.[​IMG]
    I would not recommend Estes hatchery for chicks...even if it could have just been a really bad batch.

    Mille Fleur is actually a color variety not a breed of bantam. Many breeds are available with mille fleur coloring.
