    Greenfire says it's Gold Duckwing, is it? Or is he Silver Wheaten? If he isn't Silver Wheaten, does anyone have a picture of a Silver Wheaten roo?

    more like golden duck wing than gold duckwing

    salmon faverolle are the same color and are silver wheaten with some autosomal red

    a silver wheaten male is a silver duck wing phenotype

    the female in the background is wheaten
