    My wife keeps looking at the hatchery catalogs and telling me how she wants a mille fleur rooster, but the hatcheries have such bad examples of the species. Where can I find one that is the "perfect" specimen.

    Serves me right for marrying a former chicken show champion.

    Mille Fleur is a variety, what breed are you looking for?

    I would assume they are talking about D'Uccles, which is the most widely confused breed with variety name. Probably because it's not easy to pronounce (unless someone tells you how).

    This thread is the best bet to find a breeder near you if I am right in assuming you mean D'uccle (variety - Mille Fleur).
