    I bought this two hens when they where only 3 months old, and I can not find any photo with other Mille Fleur that look the same. They are leg feathers, white with black tails, some black on the wings and a little bit around the neck. The brown on the back of one of them and on the side of the other one is actually paint. They are very curious chickens and where getting to close from me while I was painting the fence. They have almost identical pattern.

    Mille Fluer is a color, not a breed, dUccles are the breed you are thinking about though but I dont think they are pure, I'm not sure if there are Columbian dUccles but Ideal may have them but I dont remember. So if they arent hatchery Columbian dUccles then they would be a cross of a Silver breed roo on Mille Fleur dUccled hens. That cross would give that color and the the beards and feathered leggs usually show up in the crosses like that.

    I am not sure, I was thinking Columbian too though. They are very cute and have very pretty coloring though [​IMG]
