    I am guessing my little chick is an OEGB, but is it just silver/gray or is there a special color name?

    The only thing I could find that seemed close was a Silver Duckwing OEGB, but adult females have reddish breast feathers.

    My chicks chest is a real light greyish white, do you think that could change to a rusty color later?

    I looks like a serma mix to me but I'm no expert by any means. Hopefully someone will come along with a better knowledgable answer [​IMG]

    If it's an OEGB it looks like a Silver Quill.

    I am pretty sure she is an OEGB, but anything is possible I guess. I bought a box of chickens at an auction and in it were two Quail colored OEGB hens and 3 chicks. Haven't a clue if all the chicks were really from either of these hens. People tend to just throw whatever they dont want in a box and sell them together.

    One chick looks like the hens, one has a little more gray, but still resembles the hens and this 3rd one is smaller than the other 2 and all light/dark gray. The other two are roos, so they will have to go back to the sale, but I am keeping this little one that I think is a girl.

    Does anyone have a pic of an adult Silver Quill OEGB? I am curious what she might look like as an adult, but can't seem to find any pics online of hens.
