    Wouldn't they look like a light blue? I have several shades of blue in my flock- and I guess you could call the palest ones frost grey.

    like Chris said, its a bloodline of American Game. They're either silver duckwing or silver wheaton.

    Quote:As in both are considered Frost Gray or as in it is one or the other. I would think the cocks would look the same, regardless, but not the hens. The hen on the site listed seems to be silver wheaten.

    yep the hen on the webpage is a silver wheaton, but i think some flocks of them have silver duckwing hens as well. you're correct in that the males will look the same regardless.

    could be Chris, the Frosts aren't my specialty. However it may be that the "small stuff" varies from one guys farm to another. To give an example using something I know about - Morgan Whitehackles. I've seen solid white, mostly white, spangled, red, and pumpkin orange morgans. hens either white, pumpkin, wheaton, clay, or b.b. red, both spangled and non. red earlobes, white earlobes, yellow legs or white legs. it all depends on who breeds them, if they added anything, if their rootstock came from the oddball colored ones on another guy's yard, etc. [​IMG][​IMG]
