    Got my first chukar egg today! Now i know i have a hen, and if its fertile i have a pair!. lol

    I obtained another trio of goldens the other day. and the rooster isnt like anything ive ever seen. He has the correct blue green on the back of the neck, but his wings are the color of a cinnamon. Heres the kicker. If you took a paintbrush and wiped ALMOST all the paint off, and painted blue streaks thru the wing feathers. Anyone ever see this? ( this is a 2 yr old full colored male btw. ) I cannot find any other traits whatsoever to find an amherst cross.

    That's the problem with goldens.Everyone is crossing them up and you never know what you are getting.It sounds like it might be a cinnamin golden,but again who knows.Please post a pic and see if we can identify him for you.
    In N.H,Tony.
