I have two that someone gave me, and I don't know. Thanks in advance.
well, she's silver, now just gotta figure out the breed
Looks like a Silver Phoenix to me.
I agree with Silver Phoenix. Her earlobes are even white.
Agree silver phoenix! Very pretty this breed is some of my favs!
Thanks guys. I forgot to say that she's really small, like bantam size.
Also, my other one is red where this one is white, but they are the same type of chicken, what does that mean?
Chances are the hen showing the reddish color is a Golden Phoenix hen. Although she might be another color like BBR I highly doubt it. Gold and Silver seem to be the two most common varieties. But is the red like Rhode Island red, or a brownish color.
You can look here to see more photos of Phoenix:
Quote:silver phoenix have slate legs and longer tails though ya? she has white
I thought so too, but her tail comes too "close together" to be a Leghorn and I doubt gamehen, but I'm not quite as good as games as you are DT!
Anyway, good quality Phoenix SHOULD have slate legs, but I'm assuming the legs can vary on hatchery stock, since I'm sure Leghorn has been bred in to increase egg production. Here's a photo from Welp Hatchery:
On that photo I can't tell if the leg is actually slate, or is just an off-slate color.
