Old English bantams were developed in England many years ago presumably from the common crossbred bantams of the countryside. Silver Duckwing Old English bantam chicks have a dark brown band that reaches from the top of the head to the tail, bordered on each side by two narrow, light silver or white stripes, giving a chipmunk like effect. The face chest, abdomen and wing tips are silver or white. They have single combs and clean, white legs and feet. Adult males have white head, back, hackle and saddle plumage. The breast, neck, body, lower thigh and main tail are black. The wing coverts are blue-black forming a wing bar when folded. The adult female has a silvery gray head and salmon front of neck. The hackle is silvery gray with black striping. The back, tail coverts, wing shoulders, fronts, bows and coverts are silvery gray stippled with ashy gray.
Our bantams are purebred and represent the breed and variety; however, we do not guarantee or represent that they are of show quality.
