    Your first hen looks like a silver duckwing. I think gold duckwings are darker than her.

    Guess I forgot the 'en' on gold [​IMG]
    Why does the second hen have a lot of black in her hackles? Can BB reds have that?

    Note a Brown Red hen is Black body with Gold in the neck. [​IMG]
    The OP's hen is a badly marked BB Red or could even be a cross of verities. (If so I would say she was a BB Red/Brassy Back cross.

    lets not nitpic on spelling

    I'm not nitpicking on spelling.
    There is a difference Genetically between Gold and Golden

    Chris is right.


    Also, GoldEN is having both gold and silver alleles - The males will be silvery in the hackle/saddle, and gold and red in the shoulder. Straight GOLD duckwings are solid red and black. Gold Duckwing females are reddish, brown, and black. There are no GoldEN duckwing females though, as it is genetically impossible.

    Hen #1 is a duckwing,however,it is really difficult to tell the difference unless you you have them both.My Goldens are a lot darker and darker in the breast than my Silver Duckwings.She looks more like my Goldens. They BOTH have the lighter hackles,whereas BB's have a golden hackle coloring amd Brown Reds are completely dark with just the hackles LACED in coppery color possibly extending into the breast but not desired.Hen # 2 is a brassyback hen or a Quail hen. Her color is much like my quails with the exception of the light in the shafting,which puts her along the lines of a brassy.She is not Brown Red nor BB red following the previous stated on the two.. The rooster is a Fawn Silver Duckwing.
    Here's a BB Red:
