I'm trying to find (free!) homes for these two boys on the South coast. They're 16 weeks old. The one on the right has just started crowing. I know the WC cuckoo on the left looks like a girl, but he's got wattles and sickle feathers and I'm pret-ty sure he's a boy.
The WC blue has been twice the size of the others since hatch (perhaps not a good thing in a bantam) and has matured much more rapidly than the other birds. They're from internet eggs, so I can't guarantee the lineage. They brooded in a cardboard box on my desk and have had lots of handling and TLC. They're shy and easily startled (no doubt because they have difficulty seeing and the pekins pick on them) but will come to my voice and are fine being picked up as long as they know it's coming.
I'm on the Kent/Sussex border and don't drive.
