Do you have a picture of a Cherry Egger or Golden Comet?

    A friend of mine is wondering if he has a Cherry Egger or a Golden Comet, probably about 5 months old. Do you have a picture I can show him, so he can see if that is what he has? Thanks.

    I will try to get one - - - but there is a very good way to describe a golden comet - - -

    They remind you of Angel Food Cake - - -lightly golden brown on the ouside and white inside. This is the coloring of a comet - - light golden brown with white undercoat . . .

    Well, my neighbor had 4 golden comets, at least that is what the feed store said they were, and they were all varying shades of orange. Two had the white underneath, one was almost rust colored, and one was a light rust with a darker rust head and hackle feathers, almost like a cape, and no visible white undertones that I saw. I wish I had a picture, but I don't, sorry.

    I have a golden comet. She is one of the best egglayers I have. Layed right through the summer heat. Her egg is darker than some of the cuckoo marans I've seen. Very sweet personality too. I'm definitely getting more next spring.

    Cherry eggers are not quite the same thing as golden comets or sexlinks. The look slightly different and lay a different color of egg.
