    We have this adorable 9 month old banty cockerel, but have no idea what type he is. He does not seem to fit any one description. Can anyone help?? please!! We would like to get some hens of the same type.

    I have a silver duckwing OEGB and he definitely looks like yours, but mine is dubbed. My son is showing him for 4-H.

    They are such good chickens. Ours loves to be held and talked to.

    Have fun!

    Thanks so much for all who replied! We thought that he was a silver duckwing also, but he has penciling in his hackle feathers, which I thought in a silver duckwing they needed to be solid white. Is this true?

    Its ideal for the hackles to be all white in the male for showing, But males with black in their hackles produce excellent colored females.
