Hey Jon - have look in poultry Mart - Nellie was offering a Gold laced Cockerel I think , though you might be too far away she does journey around - might be worth a try ?

Hi Heather,

Thanks for the thought! Sadly it's a Gold-laced Poland, so I think he might find my big fluffy ladies a bit of a handful!

Judging by the classifieds in the smallholding and poultry mags, Gold-laced Orps are getting slightly commoner, but they're still very few and far between. Quite high infant mortality I believe, which if so, suggests to me a fairly shallow gene pool.

Ah, thanks for that Fangs. I should have read the whole of the thread more carefully!

Next big question - how do we get a gold-laced orp roo up to Shetland? I've only bought stock here when I've been down in the south with a car / van, and I'm not planning any trips south in the near future (too expensive just for a roo :( )
