    Very nice. I like her rich coloring. The one golden cuckoo hen I have that lacks feathered legs is quite dark, with just a tiny bit of gold. I won't be breeding her, but she does have a nice egg. After the entire summer off and then the molt, her comb is finally turning red again, so I'm hoping to see an egg before real winter sets in.

    Thanks [​IMG]
    She really has nice type though and bred to one of my roosters you would probably get some good looking babies. [​IMG]
