    quick question...ok there is someone on facebook that says they raise golden necks i questioned them about it because it looks like a white with gold leakage and they go and tell me that they don't raise mixes. on another pic of a silver laced Cochin mix they proceed to say its a silver laced Cochin (not including the mixed part) someone else questioned if it was a mix and said person goes on to say yea its a mix and You know all we raise is mixes in rabbits and chickens.. this raises a very bright red flag to me what do yall think? i proceed to ask a question about the d'uccle (if it was gonna get more coloring and spangles) also letting them know i have 2 goldens that look nothing like this and this person has yet to answer my question...so what do yall think??

    heres the pic of the 'golden neck' d'uccle

    LOL why post something under one pic then go on another and say the exact opposite from what you said on another post?? this person got all upset because the d'uccle looks like a color mix and posted in all caps they dont raise mixes...they might kick me out of the group now because this person is a moderator on the page...well needless to say they haven't posted again under either pic....

    Uhh, can't fix stupid! Why is it folks on line don't think others can cross-reference what they've posted elsewhere? I've caught folks in so many double-speaks or outright lies, it's not even funny. I just block them or mentally delete them from my circle.

    yea i know never to buy from that person...hate that people do this though, maybe this post can be a warning/learning post to some to try and cross reference the breeder before they get their babies.

    They deleted their comment about only raising mixes and mine for questioning them about that from the d'uccle pic
