Doug Austin lines

Today this color is bred in Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Holland, Switzerland and now in the United States.  For diversifying the gene pool the German Orpington breeder Manfred Schwarz advises to cross in black.  After 2 or 3 years the birds are bigger more vital and in the correct color again,

Standard:
The Gold Laced Orpington is a striking bird with beautiful distinct  lacing. The eye color is brown-red, the beak is light horn-colored in the male and horn colored in the female.  The legs flesh colored white, bottom of the feet white.  In the females slight gray shinning is allowed.

For those interested in learning more about how the color was formed, this may be interesting reading.
