    Just curious how your Silver Duckwing Bantam(s) did over the winter. We have two tiny little girls, one a Mille Fleur OEG Bantam and one a Silver Duckwing OEG Bantam. They are so sweet and smart -- they have quickly become my favorites. I, too, am worried about them in the Virginia winters. Their little legs are so tiny and thin, and they prefer to roost in their outdoor-but-enclosed pen at night, crazy girls. I can't get them to be indoor sleepers, no matter what I try, so I'm particularly worried that they'll get too cold at night. Did yours fare well?

    Rachel was my favorite chicken and the nicest Silver Duckwing you could meet:). Unfortunately I lost her this week -- no sign of her at all which is devastating:hit. I got her when she was 2 years old and had her for 3 additional years. Does anyone know where I can find another hen? I live in Sussex County NJ. I appreciate any recommendations...

    i have a male and female oeg silver duckwings i picked out of a assorted bantam bin at tsc. they are about 10 months old and well under a lb. I'm going to breed them this spring and sell the chicks as pets. they are both super tame and allow us to handle them. they are calm and inquisitive. even more so than my silkies. I'm in n. Maine and we hit -35f every winter and these guys handled it just fine in a uninsulated, unheated kids playhouse converted to a coop with 4 other bantams in there.
