Hi, i was wondering if anyone is doing a gold laced orpington in Australia? Also what genetics would be needed? Would it be on E or ER? And i read somewhere that on top of the usual single laced genes, you also need Db for it to show in E or ER?
One other question, can you get Partridge on E base?
Any help is appreciated, thank you. :thumbs:

I think golden laced Orpingtons might have been recently imported to Australia from UK but not sure. If you want a project, its fairly easy to do using Wyandottes, but like most projects would take a good decade to get worthwhile long term results.
