    I bought 4 hens and a rooster from the local Chicken Man. He seemed fuzzy as to what breeds they are.
    Is the rooster a Golden Duckwing?.I'm pretty sure two hens are Silver Duckwings, but I'm not sure about the other two.

    Here is the rooster and the the unknown hens:

    The last one is almost definitely a BBRed hen. I have the larger version that looks just like her. As for the other two, idk. The other hen looks like a wheaton, kind of, but not really. Hope you find out!

    The male sure looks like a golden duckwing but the middle picture seem to be like a lemon blue female, she might have some other color crosses like wheaton...as to the last one I'm guessing she's a ginger red x BBR ...Not 100% sure but it looks like it...

    the rooster is a golden duckwing, Breed is unknown, the little hen is a OEGB (or at least.. looks like one), She seems to be a ginger, Or a very light brassy back blue hen. (i say blue because she has some in her tail) and she has the color of the light sided brassy backs, as for the 2nd hen i have no idea to the color. its not a BBred as their darker, and shes too dark to be a wheaten. but is the "Wheaten" color, or thats what its called in many breeds other then old englishs.
