    Chocolate cuckoo male over Buff female:
    100% chocolate cuckoo females(chocolate with head dot at hatch, but when they grow they will show buff/silver barring on the breast area).
    100% black barred roosters(black with cream head dot and cream underbelly) the males will develop a buff colored barring on breast.
