    Several years ago I worked up a nice flock of Bill braden and Kelly Cratty line Cuckoo marans..I was very fond of that line of birds, they were the darkest laying cockoo's Ive came across..Well I got a case of the stupids and sold them a couple years ago and have had no luck finding that line of birds again..Anyone know if they are still around?
