    Are these OEGB's barred or cuckoo? I was told they were barred, but the older they get, the more I'm starting to wonder???

    They look like hatchery-quality barred... (just like cuckoo!!) I had a hatchery quality BR and his barring looked just like that.

    ETA - OOOPS!! I missed that they were oegb - they could just be poor quality barred.

    So I guess the person I bought the eggs from bred her hatchery barred birds, since the eggs didn't come from a hatchery.
