    this is a pic of my 2 month old oegb chick, daddy is blue crele (i think) momma silver duckwing.

    I've wondered tho if my 'blue crele' is really more of a blue cuckoo pattern or barred, but the barring is more distinct on this chick (roo)...

    not having any other barred birds on the property (or cuckoo) I don't have anything to compare with so thought i'd ask here.
    here's the chick.

    sorry for the image quality, it was taken thru not-quite-clean glass. [​IMG]

    here's the poppa at about 4-5 months old

    What a pretty color! I have no idea about the barring though. Very nice.

    Hard to judge but I'd call him Cuckoo, especially considering he's probably an offspring of barred or cuckoo x non-barred/cuckoo.
