    Here a while back I got eggs of different breeds of bantams. The eggs were marked as sd for silver duckwing or dorking and pencile rock and barred rocks. This one in question was marked sd but, I can't verify if that is what she is as I can't find anything at the hatcheries that looks like it. She is a solid black w/very black legs and almost a blue sheen to her. I'll try to get better pictures of her tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

    Dorkings have 5 toes right? Doesn't look like 5 toes on that chick. She doesn't look like any of the other 3. Where did you get the eggs from?

    I got them from a friend that live about an hour away as a swap for a peahen I had and they gave me a bunch of eggs in return that had some ringneck phansants, now I got to get rid of 5 juvenile male on them, lol
    Here is some more pictures if it helps of her and going to get my husband to grab her in the morning so I can take more closer up pic's

    Finally a closer picture of her and if you don't mind I have two others that I'm not sure if the same breed. When I got the eggs they were marked as SD for Silver Duckwing or Dorking-don't know which. Also PR I assume Pencil Rock or Partridge Rock-those are the two that I don't know if same breed, one looks to be male and the other a female. But don't know which is which, lol. Please help, here are better Pictures.

    Also Silver Duckwing Old English Game roo on the left, and the one on the right is the Silver Penciled Rock, also looks like a roo.

    Boy that is great news and thank you atimme. I didn't know he even has the Samatra. As far as the Silver Penciled Rock goes I think she might be a female. Here's another picture. Let me know again what you think.

    Do you know where I can find a mate for the Samatra?

    Yep with those black leg's look's like a bantam Sumatra.I currently have 2 7 month old hen's.I raised the standards about 5 year's ago.I dont have a roo for my hen's either yet.I only hatched 2 out of 8 egg's and got 2 hen's but the other egg's werent fertile.But I did get the egg's in Dec and I had a mix Xmas flock.MY OEGB's have been mating them and have gotten quite a few chick's from them so far.I think you will enjoy them all though.I got a few more duckwing's again this time.They are very tame bird's and my 2 sumatra hen's seem to be great too.Hope you can find a roo for your's.And yep I think your penciled is a hen.

    This is so great! Now if I can find mates for all 3 would be fantastic without buying a slew of them. That's going to be hard to do probably. Anyway thanks to everyone for all your help.
