This is one of my Golden Laced Bantam Cochin chicks at 35 days old. Really!! I got the sire and dam from a Master Breeder of GL's. When I contacted her about the white showing up, she said whites were used several generations back to improve type, and it occasionally shows up. So I have a couple of questions that I haven't been able to find the answers to yet reading thru the recessive white threads: 1) I believe that GLs are sex-linked - would that tell me anything about whether the gene was passed from the sire or dam? 2) Can I still use him in my GL breeding program - all I have at the present is the sire and dam, and a bunch of his siblings. So either back to the dam or one of his sisters - would either be better? (I have no un-related GL's.) Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanx!!
