    He has just started crowing. Bought him out of the mixed Bantam bin at Orscheln.

    He sort of looks a little like Clyde....He's just a mixed game bantam, but he gets confused with a Silver Duckwing....

    Sorry, closest I can guess but he sure is pretty!!

    He's definitely not a bantam phoenix. At his age,their tails are much more longer.
    He looks like a Silver OEGB cock. He's very pretty [​IMG]

    Quote:Silver Duckwing is just the color. It comes in several breeds of birds.Your birds color would be duckwing also.However he seems to be more of a Golden duckwing mix.The difference is in the hackle colors and the wingbows.See how brightly colored the hackle feathers are on hersand yours have more of a creamy look. On the wing bows yours shows a touch of golden feathering. Better colored birds would show my explanation better. So both of your boys are a typr of duckwing. [​IMG]
