    I have this Phoenix that I am possibly entering in a local State fair and want to make sure she is a good candidate...this is the first year I am showing her at State and don’t really know what to look for show quality wise. From what I have been reading online I have noticed there are two different types of silver Phoenix- silver Phoenix and silver duck wing Phoenix, and am not sure as to which one she is or what the differences are between the two.

    Could someone tell me whether she would do well or not...or what I could improve on? Also could anyone possibly link an online SOP that I could refer to? Thank you in advance for any help.

    The pictures should work now, I didn’t realize I inserted them incorrectly.

    Silver and silver duckwing should be one and the same, though I can't view the pictures.

    Pics still don't work, but I saw her before. Silver and SDW are the same :)

    In terms of meeting the standards, her leg color is correct, correct eyes, beak, comb type, good wattles, good head shape.
    Her body type is not bad, either.
    As far as feathering goes, I wish she had a longer tail

    That's a confused hen.
    I've noticed Phoenix roosters can be late to show. But trust me, no hen has a solid black tail.

    How full is her tail? Can't tell.

    It seems pretty fully feathered...I can try and get better pictures if it tomorrow.
