    Does she have a red outline around her eyes? I don't see any yellow on her legs, looks like maybe a Lady Amherst hen. defiantly not a Red or Yellow Golden.

    @deserthotwings no red around the eyes either. What do think? For sure She's not a ring necked right?

    It's hard to tell. She looks like maybe a Golden -Amherst mix. But sure no pure golden.

    Try calling the 29 Palms Ranch in Robertsdale Alabama at 251-964-2922. He usually has some or some eggs, but do call before 7pm central time.

    @deserthotwings That's what I was thinking too. I acquired a true pair of red goldens the same day as the post. Thanks for the contact.
