Valley Hatchery proudly presents the captivating Silver Duckwing Old English Bantam Chicks, a perfect blend of charm and personality, ideal for both poultry beginners and seasoned enthusiasts. With a rich history acknowledged by the American Poultry Association since 1938, these bantams are not just eye-catching but brimming with character.

The dazzling plumage of the Silver Duckwing Old English Bantam sets it apart. The roosters are a breathtaking spectacle, featuring a white and black plumage blend. Their head, back, hackle, and saddle shine in brilliant white, while the breast and lower areas contrast in deep black. The wing coverts shimmer in blue-black, creating a stunning wing bar when at rest. The hens, in soft silvery gray and salmon hues, flaunt a graceful appearance with black-striped hackles and elegantly speckled backs and wings.

Beyond their striking looks, these bantams are a bundle of energy and activity. They’re natural foragers, making them not only fun to watch but also useful in keeping your garden free of pests and weeds. The hens are diligent mothers, fiercely protective of their young, ensuring thriving, healthy chicks.

Silver Duckwing Old English Bantams are also a delight to handle, surprisingly gentle, making them a fantastic addition to families, especially those with young children. They’re not just pets but also potential show-stoppers in poultry exhibitions, thanks to their versatile and endearing qualities.

In size, the hens tip the scales at about 22 ounces, while the roosters are slightly heftier at 24 ounces. Both sexes sport single combs, but it’s worth noting that show standards require males to be dubbed. The males feature a predominantly white head, starkly contrasting the females’ silver-gray tones.

These bantams have a noble lineage, descending from the Old English Game, famous since Roman times and revered in poultry shows post the 1849 cockfighting ban. They’re not just historically significant; they’re practical, too, laying around 100 eggs annually.

Don’t miss out on adding the delightful Silver Duckwing Old English Bantam Chicks to your flock. They’re more than just birds; they’re a joyous and beautiful addition to any backyard or poultry exhibition. Place your order with Valley Hatchery today and let the adventure begin!
