    I absolutely love watching these guys. They have a gorgeous look to them but they also have a little attitude to back it. I suggest keeping 1 rooster lol. Other than that I love these chicks.

    Ordered 6 silver duckwing standards and received 7 happy healthy chicks. All are thriving and love playing king of the water tower!

    Smart and small birds. Very smart.

    Love these birds

    Absolutely love these birds. The hens are very tenacious and don’t get pushed around a lot for their size. With people they’re very sweet. My rooster is 10 months old now and his tail is beautiful and flowy. He is a typical roostering to be a little jerk sometimes but not very often.

    iv bought both silver and golden and the silver seem to like to fight with people a bit where the golden ones dont . they are good looking bird though

    Clever bird

    Received a Silver Duckwing Phoenix pullet as part of the Rare Breed Special back in May 2019.
    She has a sweet disposition, and is very curious. We noticed early on that she can fly a good distance when she wants to, and so I trained her to fly to my arm when called. Gets along well with the other pullets and hens she lives with.
    We are strongly considering ordering several more of these next year!

    Beautiful rooster with sass!

    I love my Silver Duckwing Phoenix rooster. He’s adorable, spritely, quick on his feet, has a good eye for predators, takes care of his girls and looks gorgeous. I highly recommend these guys for a lightweight, beautiful rooster that isn’t going to damage your hens – at least in my case he hasn’t, as all my hens are fat, fluffy layer types. He’s got an eye for the biggest, fluffiest gals! Too funny.

    Just wanted to say thanks so much for the courtesy calls from your company on my chicken issue. I am not in the least upset with anyone other than myself. We will be re-ordering and looking forward to more beautiful baby chicks from you. Again thanks and have never conducted business over the net with anyone more cordial as you guys have been.
