    I picked these two up from the local feed store when they were chicks, and it's still a mystery to me what they are. At first I was thinking phoenix, but then I saw the silver duckwing OEG, and now I'm kind of at a loss. Any ideas?
    Sorry for the pics being blurry, they wouldn't sit still long enough.

    They are slate. Is that one of the differences between the two breeds?

    How old are they? I think that they are OEG both are pullets
    1 is a BBR....Black-Breasted Red
    2 is a silver duck-wing
    the diff. from the Phoenix is bigger...both are game, but OEG are better pets....

    They're about 5 1/2 months old. They are smaller and more sleek/slender than my little japanese bantams. BBR and SDW is what I was thinking on their colors. Now I just have to find them a roo. And try for Phoenix next year. Thanks! [​IMG]

    Quote:I think I'm going to see if I can find a place that sells these sexed. It's unlikely, so I'm prepared to get some more from the feed store.

    Yep, OEG. They make great little bug pickers, they gang up on anthills like nobody's business!
