I think the lemon cuckoo is a boy which is good as thats a mate for Polly , above


I think millefleurs are my fave too although really like the lemon cuckoos. buff black white are all boring. lav look nice
Lavender are nice!
I agree though about buff, black and white although I love them in other breeds. Is Millefleur a standardized colour yet, I'm pretty sure it isn't? Other than that I really love Pekins in Columbian
I'm thinking about some Lemon Millefleur Sablepoots I was offered. :/

Liam I reckon yes on the LC Sablepoots.. I'm after those too! Hadn't decided on colour yet but fancy working with the breed.

Pimp, I am coming up to hatching time a week this Saturday - can't wait! A lot of the eggs are duff (ebay) but looks like I could be in for 4 Salmon Faverolle & 3 CC Legbars. Maybe one Leghorn and maybe one more pekin but not looking good, I think it stopped developing.

Here are the two chicks from this thread, now 17 days old:

I think I will get them. I just got 2 more bantams yesterday and there's no room to quarantine any more for a few weeks yet. But I'll see what I can figure out.
Funnily enough I will definitely be hatching Cream Legbars and Faverolles, due to sexing at a young age, when everyone goes broody so if you know any good egg sellers please let me know.

Looking good, I have a Millefleur Pekin pullet reserved for collection on Sunday, also a nice 1 year old Lavender hen and a choice of several Whites.

Having looked at pics of Blues though I think they are probably my favourite colour, I can't find any for sale at the moment but I think I'm going to have to get one, or maybe a few...
