Seen one at an auction today and was wondering what they meant by duckwing.
Duckwing is a color. There is several different colors of duckwing too. Fawn Duckwing, Silver Duckwing, Chocolate Duckwing. To name a few.
Here is my Fawn Duckwing OEGB.
Thanks .That clears that up.Also, with all the differnt colors on a chicken how does one call this bird that or that bird this?
You welcome. Beats me there is about 10,000 different colors of chickens and I dont know a tenth of them.
Well, part of it is pattern, one of which is what duckwing is. Notice how the ends of the wings are a solid colour that matches the hackle & saddle? That is duckwing. Fawn because his body is fawn coloured.
look st those spurs!, how does/did he sit? LMAO
duckwings are pretty
Duckwing is a color pattern. BBRed, Blue Red, Silver Duckwing, Golden Duckwing and Wheaton are a few.
Partridge, Duckwing, Black brested red and wheaten males all have the duckwing.
Black brested red is in fact a duckwing without the silver (thus "gold duckwing" i.m.o.). As is light brown.
The "geneticists" among us use "duckwing" to denote the wildtype e-allele e+.
Birchen and extended blacks (solid) don't have the groundcolor wing triangle.
I just Googled "what is a duckwing chicken' and it brought me rightback to BYC!!!
All this time...all of a couple of months that is! LOL!!! I thought duckwing must mean something about the way the wings were held!!!
Now I know!!
