The literal translation of Mille Fleur is "thousand flowers" - the name bestowed on Belgian d'Uccle bantam chickens with certain feather patterns. In the United States, the breed is known as the Belgian Bearded d'Uccle, as the birds sprout small beards. Mille Fleurs have single combs and large amounts of tail feathering. The name Booted Bantam, also called the Dutch Booted Bantam and the Sabelpoot, is derived from the bird's extravagant feathering on the feet and hock joints, which are called vulture hocks or "sabels" in Dutch. Almost exclusively an exhibition chicken raised by poultry fanciers, they appear in more than a twenty colour varieties.
