Re: Mille Fleur Trio

They are quite lovely! That is the Mille fleuriest EO rooster I have ever seen!

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

:applause: a big brute and looks very confident in his grandeur....the coloring kinda reminds me of a circus clown.... :chairhide: but that's a GOOD THING  =D  and the pullets look so calm and sweet natured.

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

I know they are not really a 'color', but the mille fleur variety we have is still my favorite. I hope I end up with a roo like Ari, he is lovely!

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

Pullet were July chicks, eggs I purchased from Claire.  Aristaeus is the son of Apollo from Susan through Claire.  He is very, very, gentle.  Elevator and the other EO boys were always coming to his defense in the bachelor coop.  I wondered if it was because his colour was so different then the other boys but I don't know.  What interested me was the behaviours I witnessed in the bachelor pen and how they differed according to chicken breed.  For example, my Marans and Welsummer did their own thing or got involved if there was a benefit for them.  The Barnevelder boys were out for themselves only.  The EO boys worked as a team with Elevator as their leader.  If Aristaeus  was being picked on by the bully (My Partridge Chantecler) the other EOs would stand on either side of him while Elevator made the threat noises or took action.  They would even escort him to the feeder when needed!  I'm not saying he is a wimp, it was a tough crowd in there until the big cull.


All the best,

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

I don't have the stomach for a bachelor pen M&K, just can't handle watching it! Isn't it neat to see the roosters different personalities though. My Red (heterozygous barred) is my most gentle Roo by far, a lover not a fighter.

Still can't get over your Mille boy's coloring, it is very unique to anything I have seen before. Doesn't get more complicated than a barred, Mille fleur columbian pattern I suspect!

Elevator never let things get too out of hand in the bachelor pen and mean boys became :eat: for Micah and family.


Do you think his colour is only unique because usually mille fleur boys are processed before maturity?  Claire had once mentioned that she thought he was really showing the BHR barring?

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

He definately has crisp barring more common to the BHR EOs and some pretty dark reds to his feathering, I can see Susan's BHR roo Apollo in that respect. With all the mottling and from the pictures it is hard to say but he might even be heterozygous barred (half way to gorria).

But I think the amount of mottling he has is still unique, even when he was a young lad he was very speckled.   have never seen it that pronounced in a rooster. Susan certainly has some very speckled hens though so it makes sense that it might show up like this.

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

OMG I'm in love with these! Of all the color varieties we see Millies are my hands-down favs. They are just such splashy, showy chooks! I hope I get a few that throw in that pattern as I would like to try keeping a pen of them as well. Currently I'm selecting the lightest and whitest deer pullets and a black and white barred cockerel for a little experiment of my own =).

Re: Mille Fleur Trio

You need a gorria or two to get rid of that barring I'm thinking RBF, if I am guessing about your project correctly.

Sorry m&K, off topic :chairhide:

No need to apologize, I am sadly often off topic  myself.  RBF...if you are buying Mille eggs I could send some Gorris eggs along for your project.  :whistle:


Susan, I'd love some photos of Apollo and his mille wives if you wouldn't mind?
