    This little lady was given to me today. She is 5 months old and is a bantam. She lays light brown eggs. Her single comb flops over. Here are two pictures I took this evening. Sorry for the quality. It was very dark outside.

    She looks like a silver duckwing phoenix to me..she has the right coloring,comb,leg color and earlobes..are you sure she lays light brown eggs? [​IMG]
    Here's a picture of one of mine for comparison. -

    No, I am not sure. I am told they are small and not bright white. They might be tinted.

    After looking at pictures, I think you're right. Here is a picture of the rooster. The same family gave him to me. They didn't know what he was. Could he be a phoenix too?

    Quote:He's a golden duckwing phoenix,definitely hatchery quality,though. You can tell because of his tail. Although he's still young,it's more like a leghorn's. He'll still be beautiful when he grows up,though,but he isn't anything "show quality." If you breed him to your hen,you should get some nice looking chicks. [​IMG]

    This is a what a show quality phoenix cockerel looks like. If you breed them,there's a chance you might get something like this.-

    Quote:Thanks. [​IMG] Yep,he's mine. He comes from a breeder here on BYC..Boggy Bottom Bantams. As for the photography,you can thank my mom for that.. xDD If I try to take a picture,it always comes out blurry for some reason. [​IMG] I must be bad with cameras or something.
