    When I bought four hens at the feed store and saw this big guy there I really, really wanted him. But since I already have some roosters I really didn't need him. I left the store with out him and did nothing but think about him the entire two days afterwards. Well long story short I went back to get him and am so happy that I did. He is such a sweet guy and has already started to eat out of my hand.
    I looked him up and I think that he is a Silver Duckwing O.E.G (standard).
    What do you more knowledgeable chicken ID'ers think???

    He looks alot like a silver Dorking. How many toes does he have (Dorkings have 5 on each foot).

    Thanks Chickenaddict, crazy huhn and ginbart. I thought he was very pretty myself. His brother was also at the feed store and he looked just like him but he was not quite as big. I started to get him as well but really didn't want to push my luck with so many roosters.

    Pinkfeather, I looked at those as well but my boy only has 4 toes. Maybe a Dorking mix of some kind???

    I see lacing in the front...so a Laced Breed. Possibly Silver Laced Wyandotte...and I'm wondering if there isn't some Leghorn in him giving him that larger comb and body.

    Both breeds would have clean yellow legs.
