    Seems to be at the top of the pecking order too! Roo or pullet!

    Thanks for your help leadwolf! We think he'll be rather handsome too! We looked over a lot of images of golden laced cochins and it just seemed on the roosters their neck feathers would all be almost a solid golden color where his are more black. So we were not for sure. Thanks again for your help! [​IMG]

    Feathering or not, at 8 weeks the comb and wattles tell the tale. I agree, he'll be stunning!

    His feathering color will change as he gets older....
