Anyone familiar with this color crossing?

A week ago, my sneaky OEGBs decided to hatch out ANOTHER couple of beautiful chicks.....in the coop ceiling. :lol: This time, it's a different variety (since last babies turned out to be pure Crele). And after a little research, I believe them to be Silver Duckwing roo over Crele female. :) Does this seem correct? They're sex-linked.

#1 appears to be a Silver Duckwing female.

#2 appears to be a Crele-type male.

From what I experimented with, these are the results you'd get from specified parentage. :confused:

There's silver duckwing and gold duckwing.
Males can carry both silver and gold so some refer to the silver/gold males as "golden".
I don't care to as it can be confusing. Some will think a gold and a golden are the same thing. Also I've seen breeds where golds are called goldens so that doesn't help.

Thanks for the explanation. :)

Is it normal for silver/gold Duckwing (with barring) males to be warm-toned when young? The pictures cause his colors to show up grayer than in reality.

He is only heterozygous(single copy of sex linked barring) for the barring gene so his chick down will not be diluted as homozygous barring males(double barring, two copies of the sex inked barring mutation)
