    Ok here is what I know, I'm 99 % sure she is a pullet, and is mille Flur ( I can't spell ) but what breed is she ???????????? her legs are willow green if that helps. DD 6 and Hubby wandered off at a swap and came back with her.
    Me " what is she ? " Hubby, "chicken?" Me " where did you get her ?" Hubby , " a guy". Me," what did you pay?" DD, " a dollar."
    she is very sweet and will fall asleep while DD holds her, DD would like to take her to the county fair, so what is it. or just a cute mix.

    do you know about how old she is and do you know if she is a bantam or not? And does it look like it has a beard? Sorry I can't tell by the picture.

    No beard, shes just glaring at me. strait comb, I think she is a couple of months old, her neck feathers are brightening up but her comb hasn't redden yet. she is small 4" high, 8" long. she easily fits in your hand.

    Quote:Mille Fleur is a colour mot a breed. She is Mille Fleur in colour. Appears to be a young bird who is still getting her colour. She should become more spangled as she matures. Possibly a Mille Fleur Old English Game Bantam.

    She looks just like my D'uccles before they had a beard but I dont think that is what she is. Maybe a Japanese chicken or a none bearded Watermaal. Just a guess

    ALL d'Uccles have feathered legs. d'Anvers do not. But, the latter are not bred in Mille Fleur.
