    I've been curious for years what kind of rooster this is. I think I finally figured out how to post pics. Your help with identifying would be very appreciated.

    It's either and OEGB Golden Duckwing or that variety in a Phoenix. Size is relative.

    Hes not a phoenix, they have white ear lobes and slateish colored leggs. He looks too big to be a bantam but I have seen some hatcher OEGBs that are a lot bigger that what they are supposed to be so that may be what he is.

    Can't think of anything with that colouration & yellow legs. I assume he's a cross.

    He is absolutely stunning whatever he is. I think that is one of the most handsome roosters I have seen.
