Mille Fleur d'Uccle Bantams
One of the Belgian true bantams, the bearded and booted Mille Fleur d'Uccle is one of the prettiest of fowl.
The d'Uccles also occur in other color varieties, such as Porcelain, Black Mottled, Self Blue (self means solidly one colour), and Blue Mille Fleur.
The Mille Fleur pattern consists of a ground colour of mahogany, with each feather marked with a crescent shaped bar of black and tipped with a V-shaped white spangle.
The true colouring does not usually appear until the first adult molt.
The Porcelains are patterned the same way, but the ground colour is straw, and the barring blue with a white tip. In French, Mille Fleur means "multitude of flowers" and refers to the colourful feather patterns.
