What do you think a mille fleur d'uccle x blue copper marans cross would look like?

    My blue copper hen was taken by a hawk Saturday afternoon, and if I can get one of my hens to set again I'm thinking about hatching her remaining eggs. Now, the most likely father would be my bantam mille fleur rooster. According to the chicken calculator (http://kippenjungle.nl/kruising.html?mgt=E:e%5Eb/e%5Eb,Co:Co/Co,Mo:mo/mo&fgt=E:E/E,Bl:Bl/bl+,S:S/(S)) they would be either self blue or self black, and carry the gene for mille fleur. What it couldn't tell me was feathering, tail shape, size, leg feathering/beard situation, etc. Does anyone here have any ideas (or even pictures?)

    I would think it would be hard for a d'uccle to breed a Marans. But I guess weirder things have happened
