    These photos are from my camera phone, so the colors aren't great. This duck, which I presume to be female but who knows, is an irridescent black, green and purple with one or two silver feathers under the wing. She's beautiful. But I have no idea what she is!

    Is this Banny Roo any particular variety? His tail is a shiny irridescent green.

    This hen I posted once before, and received a lot of guesses as to her variety.. but everyone asked for more pics. If it helps, I believe she is the culprit laying a golden/copperish/speckled egg. (Unless Brown Leghorns do? Or Silver Laced Hamburgs do? Someone is! And only one of them!).

    Cayuga? maybe? I'm not great with ducks. Cayugas are typically black.

    Phoenix? Possibly leghorn?

    The hen is a barred rock (love them!)

    And you also have a grey silkie rooster [​IMG]

    Thank you! Can Pheonix come in Bantam? I had no idea!

    As for my rooster, even if I hadn't known what he was, he goes to great lengths to remind me daily. He is the noisiest, most opinionated sucker on the planet. He walks around, REMINDING everyone that he is a very attractive silkie roo, shows preferential treatment to my silkie hens and calls meetings in the chicken coop.. to which all ten of my hens are expected to attend promptly. Generally these meetings are called when he has found something to eat, when he feels like crowing, or right before he stretches his wings. I'm not sure if I love him or despise him.

    I'll wait till the hen lay an egg just to be sure.... her legs need to be yellow to be a barred rock.
