UPDATE
 
After alot of consideration, I have decided its time to start working with the cuckoo silkies again. I had a baby in December 2006 & my son has kept me busy for the last couple of years.
 
We have some new additions to the farm, and boy are the beautiful..check out my Swan page.

2006 hatch cuckoo male
newboy.jpg

        This little cuckoo male is a first , he has dark slate skin & beak.
He is the result from breeding cuckoo roo x white hen. His background coloring is fairly dark & he has awesome toes. His body shape is so compact , he's a pretty small male. I dont think his comb will super smoothe ,although it is smaller than most....and it is red..but the skin,  beak color & toe placement is such a huge milestone for these guys UPDATE- This little roo was killed by predators..such a shame
 

2006 hatch cuckoo pullet
newgirl.jpg

This pullet is the result of cuckoo x cuckoo breeding. her barring is more distinct than females born from cuckoo x solid breeding. She's still young & her crest is just starting to grow along with the rest of her. Her skin is a great shade of slate blue . The biggest improvements to my cuckoos this season have been skin & toes.
