    I have 4 silver Phoenix roosters and want to breed to three hens. The lightest brightest silver color and dominant rooster has some mahogany specs one his covert (upper wing feathers) but a very bright solid saddle. The others are a solid very pale gold on coverts and saddle . Are the specs okay on the brighter rooster or would the solid pale gold color be the better.

    I would use the whiter bird. You don't want the yellowing (or the mahogany, for that matter), also, his tail carriage is a little closer to the standard.

    Another thing-Phoenix should have white ear lobes and lay white eggs. Where did you get your birds?
