    Is there anyone who knows someone who has information on a place to acquir that sells or may have one themselves? Friends of mine lost their Rooster and have been trying to replace it or they will have to sell their Hens since they can't breed them anymore. Any info is greatly appreciated

    Do you mean a red golden?Or a chinese ringneck?There is no such creature as a chinese golden.Red goldens are from China,but it is not part of their name.

    Try Karl Zimmerman in Martin,Tn.,Bob Rader in Bean Station,Ron Phillips in Knoxville,Alden Jones in Old Hickory,Delinda Crawford in Delano,Justin Howell in Greeneville.All these people raise red goldens,along with a few more species.
