Golden Laced as in Golden Sebright Bantam

Golden Laced as in Golden Sebright Bantam
 
Color of Male and Female
PLUMAGE: A bright even shade of golden bay throughout the entire surface, the golden bay to be of sufficient density to prevent underlying lacing from showing through the web of the overlapping feathers.  Each feather is evenly laced around the entire surface with a fine-width type of lacing of intense black, the black appearing upon the surface or exposed portion of the feather to have a rich greenish sheen, keeping in mind that contrast is important.
 
Judging Instructions: In judging, undue consideration is not recommended on matters of undercolor so long as ideal surface color exists.
