    No idea, but those feathers on her back sure look like a lot like one of my Millie's feathers. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    1/2 silkie, 1/2 Mille Fleur D'Uccle -- ??

    It looks like it has black skin, and if it has blue earlobes, then it probably is a silkie mix. I don't know what the other half is though. HenMama, are you sure you have a Millie Fluer D'uccle? I would think they have white spots.

    I was thinking Silkie x d'Uccle cross as well. Probably Quail, not Mille Fleur. Mille would have white in it.

    Quote:Yes, they are 13 weeks old now and have been getting their white spots over the last few weeks. You can see spots in this pic I took today. [​IMG]

    Henmama2 It has too much black to be a mille fleur color, it has to be some other color

    And the white bird looks like it is a silver laced pattern, and looks like a light brahmea mix

    I agree.... half Silkie... and GORGEOUS!!!!! [​IMG] Maybe Silkie x Brahma (bantam maybe)

    And I also agree... not Mille Fleur patterned.... the black isn't right. And the head wouldn't be black like that either.

    She's not super spotted, but you can see the pattern on mine..... note the head, the feet and the shape of the black on each feather. The black should be almost heart shaped.

    If I'm wrong...someone correct me..... but I've not seen any Milles like that anywhere.. I agree, must be some other color. They are gorgeous though! [​IMG]

    foxcove I cant see the blue earlobes, they look white to me but if you say they are blue then she must be half silkie. She is verry pretty [​IMG]
