    Hello!
    I hatched this little baby about 4 weeks ago, going on 5. His name is Autum (we are in the process of thinking of a new BOY name!). At first I had no doubt he was a B.B R. OEGB He looked the same as the BBR chick. But now, his feathers are growing in, and they don't look to be BBR.
    I recently looked up Silker duckwing OEGB, and the chicks look the same, and the rooster looks to have the same colors as Autumn does. What do you think? BBR or Silver duckwing?


    Here he is as a baby.

    Silver Duckwing. Also, from baby pics, he looks like a she.

    I agree that it is a silver duckwing but it is a roo. Pullets shouldn't have a black breast.
