    The hen looks like a silver ginger. The male looks more silver duckwing but with lots of spots on his chest. I think someone was doing a breeding experiment to get silver ginger duckwings or something like that. I really like the color a lot. The hen has silver duckwing in the wings.

    Well, one of my pullets was naughty today. Imagine the surprise my cousin and his work partner got while redoing my roof when a tiny chicken climbed up the ladder after them and landed on my cousin's shoulder. Naughty little Juliet. It's a good thing she's so pretty and sweet.

    the rooster is silver duckwing.
    the hen im not sure of, there are colors i havent owned. it appears to be a silver duckwing cross, but im not sure. silver duckwing hens have a salmon colored chest and usually a double penciling in the wing. someone else may come along and more.

    thanks for the info. around a year ago i had some oegbs mix with seabrights. i ended up selling them. and i ended up regretting it. so when i seen these i got them. i also got a porcelain hen. if i crossed it with the rooster what color would they be?

    i think it the porcelain will fade the black and add in some buff or red streaking, but im not sure. how far are you from ohio? i have an extra silver duckwing pullet.
