Mille Fleur d'Uccle
Mille Fleur d'Uccle is a fun and beautiful option for folks interested in bantam chickens. Its name means "thousand flowers of Uccle," as it has lots of spotted feathers (which could be said to resemble flowers) and it originates from Uccle, Belgium. These are a delightful addition to any flock focused on looks. Its feathers make it reasonably cold hardy, but its feathered feet are a bit of a disadvantage in our climate.
KIS Tip: If you want to avoid the mouthful that is, "Mille Fleur d'Uccle," you can call them, "Millies," instead.

Fun Fact: We once had several Mille Fleur d'Uccle roosters at the farm, and we were in the process of deciding which to keep. The first one we introduced to our two Golden Sebright hens, and they attacked him! The second one fared much better. They immediately took a liking to him, and we decided then to name him, Brad Pitt.
