Today I brought home a new chick to join the three others I'm currently raising (a Blue Copper Marans, a Black Star and an Australorp). She's a three day old Golden Comet hybrid, and she's a beautiful very pale pumpkin color with an interesting greenish cast to the skin right around her eyes. I had thought that Golden Comets were a cross between a Rhode Island Red and a Leghorn. However, the Coop where I bought her told me that theirs are a cross between a Rhode Island Red and a Rhode Island White. This may be an utterly stupid question, so please forgive me if it is, but wouldn't that make her a Rhode Island Something as opposed to a Golden Comet? Confusing things further, I've now read online sources that say that a Golden Comet (also called a Cinnamon Queen) is a cross between a RIR and a Delaware. So I'm just curious whether anyone can clear this up for me. Maybe any of these crosses with a RIR are called "Golden Comet?" Thanks for any info on this.
