Does anyone know how is this rooster colors called?
Also, if you have a chicken like this, do you remember the coloring of his parents? And your chicken it's a rooster or hen?
It is definitely a rooster and has the duckwing pattern.
Quote:OK, thank you very much.
Your bird is a cockerel and it looks to be a golden duckwing color:
Quote:Thanks, does anyone knows if hens can can up with this feathering?
No, the hens are not cock-feathered if that's what you're asking. The hens look similar to the female in the photo (of a painting?) I posted.
What you have is a Golden Duckwing that doesn't look too bad. I would suspect that he is a first year cross from the BB Red's and Silver Duckwings you also have in the picture.
To get better wingbows ( which is his biggest color downfall) just put him over the BB Red females. The Silver Duckwing female in the picture maybe a Gloden Duckwing, it is extremely hard to tell the difference between them.
