    I saw that pips & peeps sold the silvers, but I thought there was a difference in the silvers and the duckwing.... So there isn't?

    Quote:There is no silver duckwing "true" Ameraucana. Often EEs will look "silver duckwing" but there is no way to reproduce it with any reliability since EEs are cross bred birds, and there's no way to know what all genes they carry. [​IMG]

    Well thank you for the information-I appreciate it. How's spring in Oregon? I was born in Redmond. I so miss the weather. I don't really care for the white stuff we get here in Michigan 5 months out of the year.
