Breeding to get a Golden Chocobo in final fantasy 7

Breeding a Golden Chocobo is a long and tedious task, but it is the only way to reach the remote areas of the world map that even your airship can't take you to. You will need to be on the second or third disc of this game to breed the Golden Chocobo. Good luck!

* STEP 1: Go to the Chocobo ranch south of Midgar and purchase at least four stables from Chocobo Bill.
* STEP 2: Equip one of your party members with the Chocobo Lure materia Bill gives you.
* STEP 3: Find some Chocobo tracks on the world map and walk over them until you get into a fight.
* STEP 4: Enter battle and look for a strange-looking yellow bird among the enemies. If you see it, proceed to step 5. If not, get into another fight.
* STEP 5: Kill the enemies as quickly as possible, making sure not to harm the Chocobo. If you kill them fast enough, you will win the Chocobo.
* STEP 6: Return to the Chocobo ranch and place your new Chocobo in the stable.
* STEP 7: Talk to Chocobo Bill. If he says, "Mmm, this one's not bad" or "This is a pretty average Chocobo," keep the Chocobo. If he says neither of these things, release it.
* STEP 8: Repeat steps 3 to 7 until you have a breeding pair of Chocobos described by Chocobo Bill as "Mmm, this one's not bad" or "This is a pretty average Chocobo."
* STEP 9: Fly to the Chocobo Sage's hut north of the Bone Village.
* STEP 10: Buy as many Sylkis greens as you can from the Chocobo Sage.
* STEP 11: Return to the farm and feed your Chocobos the Sylkis greens until their statistics are as high as they can go.
* STEP 12: Fly to the Golden Saucer Casino and enter your Chocobos in the Chocobo races.
* STEP 13: Race your Chocobos until they both become Class A Chocobos.
* STEP 14: Fly to the small forested island due south of the Chocobo Ranch.
* STEP 15: Equip one of your party members with the steal command materia.
* STEP 16: Walk in the forest until you get into a fight with a band of Goblins.
* STEP 17: Steal a Zeio nut from the Goblins.
* STEP 18: Fly to the Chocobo farm.
* STEP 19: Save your game.
* STEP 20: Breed your two Chocobos, feeding them the Zeio nut. This should produce either a green or a blue Chocobo. If it doesn't, reload the game and try again.
* STEP 21: Save your game.
* STEP 22: Repeat steps 14 to 19 until you have two different Chocobos of different colors and sexes (a blue male and green female or vice versa).
* STEP 23: Repeat steps 9 to 18 with your new green and blue Chocobos.
* STEP 24: Breed the green and blue Chocobos, feeding them the Zeio nut. This should produce a black Chocobo. If it doesn't, reload the game and try again.
* STEP 25: Repeat steps 9 to 12 with your new black Chocobo.
* STEP 26: Race your black Chocobo until it becomes Class S.
* STEP 27: Fly to the Bone Village.
* STEP 28: Get in a fight in the plains outside the Bone Village with a monster called a Vlakorados.
* STEP 29: Steal a Carob nut from the Vlakorados.
* STEP 30: Return to the Chocobo ranch.
* STEP 31: Save your game.
* STEP 32: Breed the black Class S Chocobo with a yellow Class A Chocobo, using the Carob nut. This should finally produce the Golden Chocobo. If it doesn't, reload your game and try again.

Here is another method suggested by Lord Eliwood from gamespot

Seeing as many people still has doubts with this, I'll list the steps to get a Gold chocobo:

-Rent at least four stables (six if you want to keep all color chocobos)
-Find Chocobo Sage at Icicle Inn area and buy 40 Sylkis
-Get a Good Chocobo (Gold Saucer area, near Corel Prison)
-Get a Great Chocobo (Mideel area) of the opposite gender
-Go to Bone Village area and steal three Carob Nuts from the Vlakorados there
-Mate the Great and Good chocobos using a Carob nut
-If you're lucky you'll get a Green or Blue chocobo
-Give your G/B chocobo 10 Sylkis, go to Chocobo Square and make him reach A class
-Free the first two chocobos
-Go to Mideel area and catch a Great chocobo of the oppsite gender of the G/B one
-Mate the two chocobos using a Carob nut until you get the color you're missing of the opposite gender of the other one
-Give the new G/B chocobo 10 Sylkis and rise it to class A
-Mate the Green and Blue chocobos with a Carob Nut
-Now you should have a Black Chocobo
-Give Black 10 Sylkis and rise him to S class
-Free all chocobos except Black (unless you want to conserve them, and you'll need 6 stables)
-Go to Icicle Inn area and catch a Wonderful Chocobo there (HINT the Wonderful ones are the ones that appear with two bunny enemies) of the opposite gender of your Black
-Give Wonderful 10 Sylkis and rise to S Class
-Steal a Zeio Nut from the Goblins at the most Northeastern island
-Mate Black and Wonderful with a Zeio Nut
-Congratulations! If everything went well, you'll now have a Gold Chocobo
