    Probably a lot, considering most folks have never heard of them. (Myself included. [​IMG])

    Considering the color had to have been brought in from anaother breed, I would be highly skeptacle of any "Golden" Sumatra, and would not purchase them as chicks. If you are not already extremely familiar with the breed i would wait until you are to decide if they are what you want. Then only buy them if you can physically see the breed stock in something other than a photo to confirm size, type, and other proper breed characteristics.

    First thing I noticed was the comb that looks like an ameraucana cross!

    Sumatras must have black combs, SMALL wattles - both not red; the neck and head are WAY to thick, tail sets way to high as well. It's a pretty yard bird no doubt, but a Sumatra - no way! Couldn't see the legs that good, but i doubt it has multiple spurs either. Generations away from standard at anyrate, and you would need some exemplary stock to breed out to. just my thoughts.
