    I am an owner of a small but very lovable mille fleur belguan d'uccle. He has been molting for some time now. on his beard he has white feathers. Is this normal for mille fluer D'uccles? He's never had as many.

    Most birds drastically change their patterns as they get older. Like the coloration of partridge in wyandottes and cochins. As adolescents they have barred feathers but as they mature they get their penciling in their feathers instead.
