Great little bird - Georgina,
Gorgeous birds, low maintenance, accepting of others into the flock and no damage to garden.
We have mother and daughter Mille Fleurs, they are the friendliest little girls, when we first got them, mum Fleur was 18mths old and daughter Milly was 5 mths old. Our cat decided to check them out mum wrapped her wing around Milly it was so cute to see her protecting her daughter. They are all the best of friends now. We would love to get another one, Milly has been broodie once, I don’t know how we would go borrowing a rooster as our neighbours are not very friendly, they tend to knock everything we do. If anyone in the Bundaberg or surrounding area has a young hen for sale we would love to hear from you. I love my hens I have a debilitating disease so I am unable to do much but I love tending my girls, they keep me going.
The friendliest little chicken - An Omleteer,
I have a Mille Fleur Lemon rooster and he is the most friendly little guy!! I love him. I picked out this tiny floofball the size of my thumb (I have small hands). He would cuddle into my palm and sleep when I'd pick him up. He now comes right to me when he wants attention. He has grown up with 2 pullets much larger than himself and, up until recently, a Giant Light Brahma cockeral. He is so laid back. As we try to integrate them into the flock, our established rooster doesn't seem to view him as a threat and he does not get along with other males. He is very observant and always has an eye to the sky. He may not be big, but when he makes his alert shreak, EVERYONE listens. No hens, so no idea on eggs.
Lovely little birds - An Omleteer,
We have recently purchased a breeding trio of lemon sablepoots. They are such little characters, the cockerel can be vicious at times but seems to have grown used to us now and tolerates being picked up to have his feet checked etc. The 2 girls have brilliant temperaments, they come running over to me when it's feeding time or I'm collecting the eggs and they love having a cuddle and being stroked. They are very tame chickens and make lovely pets. Since we have several other breeds and we are hoping to breed from the sablepoots they are in their own run with attached hutch at present, they seem happy in there and are always chirping away. The cockerel puts a lot of effort into his crow but it really is nothing deafening, he also tends to shut up if you talk to him mid-crow. Since having the chickens we have on average got 1 egg a day (their laying pattern changes from each chicken laying every other day to them both laying on the same day and not the next, there's not much consistency) Overall they are really lovely chickens and make such great pets. By far my favourite breed out of everything we have.
