Mille Fleur EOs

Here are photos of two of the Mille Fleur pullets I recently sold.  They are under a heat lamp in the photos.  These are Maraduna based.  The girls we kept are gorria based and very little white.  Can't wait to watch them hatch!

Don't know why they look like they have white legs, maybe the red light?  They are yellow legged girls.

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

Looks like they only got half the Mille fleur....they have the white but not the black. Mottled may be the correct term I think. They are lovely big girls though who look like they just love to cuddle :love:

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

Beautiful!  If popular girl is correct maybe we should call them mottled. Will have to ask some judges. We should have a standard for these as well as they are a very popular colour. Yes I do agree they need some black on each feather with the white. Something we need to work on, for mottled we probably need to get rid of the black.

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

Thank you Kenya!  I drafted a very rough standard.  I posted it here but can't find where. :oops: It could at least be a place to get started.  Here are some youngster a friend is letting me post.  They are from my Mille EO breeding flock.  They look so young in this photo but you can see their dad in them!

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

Anything mottled/mille fleur gets a great big :thumbs: from me :)
I would love to source some eggs from you in the future M&K!
(I am currently working on a mottled project here in Alberta - both black mottled and wheaton/mille fleur so anything spotted definitely catches my eye!)

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

Maybe some Mille fleur EO culls from my breeding this year karaandblue as I have hatched chicks from two millefleurs hens. Depends if any of my roosters carry the mottling allele as its recessive.

Re: Mille Fleur EOs

I have a speckled hen with my main roo and hatched from them. Lo and behold I get speckled chicks. Obviously Notorious BIG has the gene. I'm very glad because I think I will make a pen of these and see how things work. I find them the prettiest of all the EO colors. The speckled pattern doesn't seem to follow a rule. In the Mottled Houdans the "mottles" are supposed to be triangular markings at a specific spot on the ends of the feathers. I think these more resemble Speckled Sussex. Perhaps Speckled Basques?
