    That doesn't look like cuckoo to me.

    Just looks like a nice mixed breed chick.

    Was it born with a white dot on its head? [​IMG]

    If so, then yes, very poor cuckoo patterning on a birchen, pencilled, or similar type color patterning.

    Otherwise it's just a silver birchen, pencilled, or other type patterning throwing you off.
