    I just helped Re Home a bunch of different kinds of Birds, I kept some for myself, what kind of chick is this? I know most of his Birds were Good quality Pure birds.

    She looks like a Silver Dorking because of the short legs and coloration, what a cutie! [​IMG]

    Dorkings have 5 toes, I'm not seeing that on this bird. My first thought was Phoenix, also.

    I have to say, though, the bird does not look well. That hunched over posture isn't normal.

    Looks like a Silver Phoenix, but could also be a Silver Duckwing Old English Game. And, I agree with Donrae--she looks like she could be sick.
