are they foragers or setters???
Bantams are generally more active birds, so will forage. They are also good setters and mothers.
Does the mille flute come in a standard size
The Mille Fleur comes as a bantam breed only.
Easily my favorite breed- with reason!I received my Mille as part of a large batch order. She instantly distinguished herself from the flock. I have never had a a chicken that so instantly established itself as part of the "human" family, even getting a name, Metaknight. She was the toughest bird I have ever owned, surviving 'possums, snakes, dogs, cats- but at the same time was the most gentile and sweetest lady. She was fearless! She would sit in my lap for hours, always let me pick her up. She was intelligent too! Sometimes it was a little wondrous just how much of a distinct personality she had. She wasn't afraid to put the rooster (and any other bird in the flock) in their place. Seriously, she was the only bantam in a flock of standards, but no one messed with her. Ever. I would even take her on day trips with me and on trips out of town. She even stayed in hotel rooms with me and was absolutely the most well behaved bird I have ever seen. This is definitely an ornamental bird meant to be a companion. She laid about an egg per year, so don't expect many eggs. She went broody only once and hatched a couple eggs I ordered for her. Again, this is an ornamental bird, but it will be impossible for you not to fall in love with a Mille once you get one. I have raised hens for over twenty years and owned over 20 breeds; as 'uselessness' as this hen was production-wise, they are possibly one of the most wonderful and interesting birds you will ever meet.
