    No GL for me......yet. I plan on adding them this year or next. They are so pretty. The contrast between the gold and the black is so striking. Great thread Dee!!

    I might have a few pictures [​IMG]. I'd like to share the diversity in their down feather colors. I was used to the gold headed babies, but then as I searched worldwide, I began to see other chick colors. Now I'm seeing it with my test hatches. I will share this year's babies. I believe I am seeing the variation since they are from two different lines? Here are my fat babies. The last one was hatched last night...Cocoa
