    Never had golden laced myself so I dunno, but you can't go wrong with EEer's!!! When you go to buy it's hard to say what to look for, you have to pretty much trust the person your buying from and hope they don't lie to you and sell you a chicken that's been laying for 2 or 3 years already and is about to stop. Do you know anyone else that has chickens that might could refer you to someone? You can look around on here too and probably find someone in your area! Good luck and look forward to seeing you around the site! [​IMG]

    My turkey was. I didn't do anything different with her than I did chickens. They are a lot more friendly and sweet as babies than chickens. As far as the chickens, get one of everything lol.
