    This chick is just a day old. Dad is a Mille Fleur. Mom is a Self Blue or a Mille Fleur. Can anyone tell me what his color will be.

    Doesn't look like my millie babies did. Will be interesting to see what it looks like when it gets older.

    I know. I don't see it as a Millie either. I've got a couple of Millies hatched as well, and they're darker. I just don't know what this color is. There is nothing in this pen other than a Millie Roo and Self Blue and Millie hens. A Porcelain would be silver-blue, right?

    I'm not sure but you should do a photo shoot with that baby because her little stripes are striking!

    Very interesting. Here are my day old mille chicks. I am wondering if my "lighter" colored one is fathered by the porcelain.


    It has the most distinct stripes of my three, but yours is striped almost like an EE.

    I've got 3 or 4 that have hatched out this color. I'll try to get a pic of them all this afternoon with the little Millie that hatched. I thought that self blue to millie would produce porcelain, but I recently read that is not until the 2nd generation. So, I don't know.

    Guitarists, do you have a baby from these 2 right now. Or have you not gotten any babies from them yet?

    PJ, is your lighter one in the pic a D'uccle also?

    And, Horsefeathers, thanks, I think they're cute also.
