Valley Hatchery introduces the Gold Duckwing Phoenix Chickens, a dazzling breed that’s a cross between the Silver Duckwing and Black Breasted Red Phoenix. These chickens are a spectacle of black and gold feathering, a testament to their intricate breeding. Originating from Japan and Germany, they are celebrated for their long, elegant tails and their production of 40-100 small, tinted eggs annually.
However, in the breeding world, the Gold Duckwing Phoenix is known for a unique trait: their golden color doesn’t breed true, often resulting in a blend of silver and gold hues in their plumage. This makes each chicken distinctively attractive. Roosters tip the scales at about 5.5lbs, while hens are slightly lighter, around 4lbs.
Renowned for their exhibition qualities, these birds are a favorite in the All Other Standard Breed-Oriental Class and have been recognized by the American Poultry Association since 1983. Not just visually appealing, they are also known for their broody nature. In addition to the standard size, Valley Hatchery proudly offers these chickens in the Phoenix bantam variety, catering to diverse preferences. Bring a touch of golden glamour to your flock with the Gold Duckwing Phoenix Chickens from Valley Hatchery.
