This variety, in many folks' opinion, is the most fascinating of all bantams. They have many unusual characteristics and their reddish-bay feathers that are tipped in white really make them stand out. Their colors will get better with age and they are very nice birds.

Customer Product Reviews
Usually I do not read writeup on blogs, nevertheless I wish to say that this writeup extremely forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, really wonderful post.
In the far past I ordered these brilliant booted banties, and again for those of you out there who are unsure, don't be hesitant they are extremely nice and good egg layers. Put these on your order, you won't regret it.
I ordered one of these a few years back, and got a GORGEOUS Millie Fleur d'Uccle hen. Unfortunately she was killed, but the next year I ordered again. This time I got a Booted Bantam instead of a d'Uccle. Even though she isn't the breed I was looking for I still love my Lily. She's gone broody twice this year and is an excellent mother. She isn't show quality, but is still fun to look at. She's fairly friendly, even though her chicks are shy. She loves being held and is not aggressive at all. She's a very good flyer though. That's not a problem since we free-range 24/7, but something others may want to consider before purchasing.
I recieved a Mille Fleur Bantam rooster from a freind who ordered him from you. He is the sweetest rooster ever. He is truly beautiful. The picture they have of this breed do not do them justice. I do 4-h and am looking forward to showing him. I will be ordering 5 more of these kind gentle beautiful birds.
I just received my 6 Mille Fleur chicks, healthy, happy, and bright eyed. They are doing great. I was worried at first about the shipping into Canada, but it was fine, and every one of them are doing great. Also McMurry Hatchery shipped me 4 extra free chicks. I will definitely be buying more chicks from them in the future .
Our Mille Fleur is a beauty! He is so sweet and kind. I named him Theodore. He's still a chick, but is coming along well. All our chicks arrived well and healthy. Thank you for the wonderful chickens, once again! Bella
I took these chickens my first year of 4H. I won Reserve Grand Champion overall. My favorite part was always picking them up from the post office. I have taken a new breed of chickens every year from McMurray and always loved them. I recently ordered Black Jersey Giants. Can't wait till they arrive! :D
We named our cock Jean Francois Napoleon. He is absolutely GORGEOUS!
Thank you for your great customer service. The little chicks are doing well.
These are wonderful birds! Very sweet and kind. I used to have one and she was a very smart chicken. These chickens are so tame that my three and four year old cousins used to walk around with them in their hands and she wouldn't budge. I recommend this chicken to everyone!!
These birds are striking in every way! The range of color in the feathering was quite unexpected. The males are active and brilliant in their display as dominant members of a mixed breed ranging flock. One cockerel in particular, has such classic lines that he is headed to the fair for sure! I've considered bantams as toy birds until now, I'm taking them far more seriously. As always, thank you for excellent stock. Sincerely, Fred
In 2004 I ordered an assortment of Bantams from you, including the Mille Fleurs. They have become the family favorites!! so calm and gentle, and extremely beautiful, we will definately be ordering more in the near future!!
Beautiful birds! Hens are wonderful setters and are very friendly. I would recommend these to anyone.
Awesome distribution of spots. Won best of show at county fair.
