    I have been working with the cuckoo variety and kept several chicks from last year.... it apears that 6 of them are roosters.... so, I have some I need to sell. the parents of these boys was a cuckoo roster with a cuckoo hen and a really nice black hen. I am very pleased with the quality of these boys, but as you may know this variety is still a work in progress.

    awww thanks guys. I should add that the photos online are NOT of each individual rooster.... they are just random shots of the birds free ranging.....
