    This was (dang raccoon) my game/BR roo. Am I correct in thinking he is Goldducking cuckoo? On his tail he had black and barring on the same feather, is this a mosaic (chimera) of sorts?

    Well if he was out of a cross of a Silver Cuckoo and a Brown Red then I guess he could be a Golden Cuckoo.
    He has lacing in his breast. I don't think a Cuckoo's should have lacing they have barring..

    He has thrown a barred columbian and either a brown red or golden birchen(?)when bred to a buff. So who knows. I think I need to rethink BR to game in his blood. That should produce anything but black barred. Mutt chickens rule.

    Thanks.
