    Is there anyone out there that has much experience with Gold Campines? I am in my first full year of raising them and I have a question as to what is the standard on their coloring. I have several young cockerals and one of them is more vibrantly colored than the others. He has the same markings and patern but his gold feathering is more of a ginger or orange color than buff or gold. He is by far the prettiest but I don't know if this is supposed to be the right coloring. Anyone know?
    Thanks,
    Monty

    Duh! I remembered that most but not all Campine Roosters are hen feathered. This one isn't and I think that is why he looks different.
