    I got these 2 hens and I was told they were Golden Duckwing Phoenix. Now that I have them home and have compared some other photos of hens I am not convinced. I also noticed when I got them home that one of the hens has spurs. Is this undesirable for breeding and or would it be DQ in show? Any advice or direction is greatly appreciated?

    You're correct that they're not Phoenix. They look to have a good amount of game bird blood, but are both indeed hens.
