Gold, being a precious metal, is weighed on the Troy system, which uses a wimpy pound and a wimpy ounce. Feathers are measured on the avoirdupois system, which has 16 full ounces in a pound. Ah, but you asked about the kg! As far as I know, a kg is a kg. So ten thousand grams of copper are heavier than one thousand grams of gold. (Technically, a kg is mass rather than weight, but that is another problem.)
