The Golden Duckwing Phoenix Standard size chicken was developed from the Onagadori Japanese breed. The Phoenix was developed in post World War II Germany. This variety is a cross between the Silver Duckwing and Black Breasted Red Phoenix, and it features beautiful black and gold feathering. Based on a Japanese breed that originated in Germany, this type of chicken is known for its long tail. In breeding for the golden color, silver is a heavy factor in the process and a large percentage of silver crops out. The golden color in this breed does not breed true. The Phoenix was bred to have exceptionally long tails, but not to the extravagant length of the Onagadori. Their tail feathers stay blood filled which will cause them to continue to grow. The male Phoenix, depending on bloodline, can have tails that reach 4-5 feet. The hens are very broody but lay small tinted eggs. These Chickens are great for Exhibition or Fair.
