    Quote:Can you post a pic of your Spangled roo ? He should be Mottled Red Duckwing, but I have seen some that were Mottled Red Columbian ( Red Mille)

    But either way you would get Mille Fleur chicks since both patterns are mottled and if he is Red Duckwing based like he should be, it would still give all Milles in the first generation if bred to a Mille hen. But breeding those offspring together or back to the Spangle will produce Spangles and Milles.

    Ok Yeah he is Red Duckwing based, so you will get what I said in the previous post.

    I would also like to add that your Mille Fleur should have Blue Leg and your Spangled should have White Legs and if this is true and both parents are true for leg color then all offspring will have White Legs.
