    wheaten, duckwing and brown/pertridge roosters basically look the same. They all have the "duckwing" = groundcolor wing triangle.
    Duckwing used to point to a blue sheen on the wing bar(?) opposed to the green sheen of crowwing.
    The wing triangle being groundcolor (gold/silver) or black didn't catch the eye apparently... [​IMG]
