    I just acquired a very nice SQ trio of bantam Phoenix's. The male is a golden duckwing, and have a female that is golden as well and the second female is a silver. My question is from breeding the females to this male what are the color possibilites? The guy I bought them from said I could hatch out more silvers as well as goldens and a very very small percentage could possibily hatch out white or BBR. Can any other breeders confirm this?

    Thanks

    I don't much about Phoenix, but I just pulled 3 out of the incubator yesterday.
    If the man you bought them from is a good breeder and knows his stock he is possibly right on what will come from them, although I don 't see BBR coming out of Silver and Golden. Some of the roosters from the Silver will possibly be silver with leaky red.
