    I got a chick at the feed store that was colored exactly like my oegb. She has turned out rather large for a bantam. She is birchen in color except her chest which is a rosy color, she has blue/grey legs and iridescent ear lobes. At first I thought she was an ee because of the color and legs but she has this incredibly long tail that sticks straight out. I hope this is good info because I'm having problems getting a good picture of her because she's in a huge pen. Maybe tonight I can get a picture.

    Silver Duckwing Welsummer Bantam maybe?
     
  7. If ya hear hoof beats think horse not zebra ;) I don't think any hatchery would sell a silver duckling Welsummer bantam. Wouldn't that be like a project bird?

    Silver phoenix looks like, that would explain the long tail, when you say her earlobes are iridescent do you mean whitish?

    I'm not at all familiar with phoenix, but I have to say that was my first thought also.
