    I have Barred,Silverback and some mixed mutts but these are by far my favorites they have so much character one little roo meets me halfway to the barn everyday to get his treat which is normally a slice of lightbread. Just wondered who else has this great little breed.

    I have a trio of hens and a roo. They are silver duckwings. My dh got them for me b/c I HAD to have some bantams. Honestly, I regret asking for them. They are mean to my other chickens, the roo has spurred my 2 yr old. Maybe I got some bad ones, i don't know, but I was disappointed. My dh had to build them their own little coop. [​IMG]

    I have 7 oegb. The hens are mixed and the roo is Wheaton, soo pretty. They are not friendly, but will eat out of my hand and are not at all mean. They have their own pen & coop, I keep them separate from my free range BR's because I have a hawk problem and have lost a couple. I love mine and would hate to be without them. [​IMG]

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    I have two trios of OEGB fawn duckwings that I wish somebody would come get. They are in their own pen and serve no purpose but to eat more than they weigh.
