And can I get bantam cochins in that color?
Anyone? I really want to find bantam cochins in that color!
Speckled. I don't know about Cochins in that color.
Quote:Mille fleur cochins? Or do you mean more of a jubilee color?
The colour in cochins is usually called Mille Fleur. They are still in the project stage in US.
If you look at this thread you will see that a lot of people are working on developing this colour in US. The people are working together & getting some nice results. Good Luck.
For some reason i thought i heard that the Speckled color in Sussex was
also called spangled as in the color of OEG.
This could be wrong but it was just what i heard.
Is speckled more like mille fleur, or is it more like the OEGB spangled (mottled on BBR)?
I think its more like spangled. There isn't the background color different between males and females. I think genetically, they are more like spangleds than they are millie fluer.
UK Speckled Sussex are on wheaten (eWh) & are the mille fleur pattern with mahogany. They have a rich even red ground colour, both males & females.
I don't know about Speckled Sussex in US; they, seeingly, are on duckwing (e+).
But when you add mahogany to millie fluer, is it still millie fluer?
Editted because I cannot spell...
