- Silver Duckwing Phoenix Bantam
The Phoenix is one of the most beautiful chicken breeds available today, and we have several varieties of miniature bantam breed. For example, we offer Silver Phoenix Bantam baby chicks, which are part of a breed that has a long history in Japan. Although people have been breeding these chickens for hundreds of years, the Silver Duckwing variety was admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1965. They will start to lay at 4 months and lay a large quantity of eggs per year. With stunning tails that can sometimes surpass twenty feet and gorgeous silver feathers, you won’t want to wait another day before placing your order. Make sure you contact Cackle Hatchery® if you have any questions!
Many people who like this breed of chicken also like the standard version of the breed, the Silver Duckwing Phoenix Chicken.

Would recommend Review by Laura
Such a beautiful breed. They survived shipping better than some of the other breeds as well. The roosters did get kind of aggressive though. Everyone always asks us where we got the roosters because they’re so pretty. The hens are broody and much more mellow. We’ve have 2 hens already hatching eggs. We really do love this breed. But both of our roosters did get mean. (Posted on 10/30/2019)
Hi Folks Review by Lois
Hi folks-you have brought great joy to me in Lancaster Pa-you shipped me sometime ago 5 baby silver duck wing phoenix bantams and I raised them-now have a few on a neighboring farm and have one hen here who just hatched two eggs-one definitely a phoenix and the other seems to be an easter bantam - the mother phoenix whom I raised is super-taking good care of them. Another mother at the farm has two phoenix chicks which are about 6 weeks old. Always nice to have animals that are lovely to look at. Thanks for the good job of shipping you do-have never lost one of yours in transit.
Will try to send a picture of a grown rooster-he is gorgeous..and a pet. Hopefully Amish family who have him will write a story-he hunts the owner and when he finds her, he crows-great joy. Thanks.
