    Kass I hardly think that you ruffled any feathers !!! In my case anyway. But it seems to me that I have seen several adverts here and one of them was a hatchery in Texas and the ad was a healiner on BYC

    I forgot to add that the cuckoo frizzle rooster and the white rooster in the pics are from the same mama hen (blue cuckoo olive egger) and daddy rooster(gloden laced/tolblunt split). I have an off white frizzle pullet from the same mating.

    Lost "Big Mama Neck Neck"a week ago to stray dogs.I normally don't name chickens but she was the most gentle chicken that I have ever owned. I have a young roo from her.So maybe her gentle nature will be inherited.

    It can be really hard to see the white head spot on light colored chicks but if they are cuckoo, look closely at the rear part of their caps and see if you can make out a white spot.

    barred/cuckoo are very easy to make- just breed any barred bird to a solid black chicken. could use your barred olive eggers with a black NN.

    did the seller's lemon cuckoos have any black in their tails?


    Quote: Hm, have buff laceds or anything red/buff with white tails? Those two chicks suspiciously sound like possible dominant white, especially the pullet. It's possible to get recessive white but that's a bit of a coincidence from two totally different lines.... if these throw whites/off whites from being bred with a black(especially a white with random colored flecks or black feathers), I'd say these two had a buff laced daddy...

    Just curious, but I bought some naked necks a few weeks ago, Just few day old chicks. Supposedly some of them may be frizzled. When to the frizzled feathers start to present themselves? hehe

    Congrats on your new birds! If they were frizzled,it'd be way obvious by now. The feathers show a curl to their wing feather tips before they're a week old. At several weeks old, they will have very obvious curls all over their body.
