    Silver Duckwing Roo mated to Silver Duckwing females will give you: 100% silver Duckwing chicks(males and females)

    Silver Duckwing Roo mated to a BB Red hen will give you: 100% silver duckwing Females and 100% "Golden" Duckwing Males..

    Golden Duckwing Males will look like this when adults
