    Does anyone know why the Millie Fleur Leghorn are not popular? They are beautiful! They lay well! Semi-friendly. :) I have talked to about 4 breeders who have ALL sold their entire breeding flock. So sad I cannot find anyone with them anymore. I think they are going to be extinct in another few years if people arent breeding them anymore! So sad. :-(
