    I love my new rooster and can't wait to get him a girlfriend or two. I was told it was a Cuckoo Polish but cannot find anything to verify this information. This is the beginning of another new FFA SAE project so I need as much information as possible to put into my record books. Thanks!

    I am so sorry,
    I just saw that your boy has what looks to be a White Crest, is that right? If so he would be a White Crested Cuckoo Polish and not a Self Cuckoo Polish.

    "Self" (in polish) just stated that it doesn't have a White or Black crest and that it is a "solid" or continues pattern throughout the bird.

    Here is a picture of a Self Cuckoo Polish (not that the Crest has the Cuckoo pattern)

    Here is a picture of a White Crested Cuckoo (note the White Crest)

    Quote:I am the (tom)boy...in the pic. LOL, Abby is my name. The first pic has the sun shining on my roosters head that makes it appear white. It isn't though. If you look at the second picture you can see that the crest is the same color as the bird. You have helped me soooo much. I am going to give an oral report tomorrow in my Agriculture class for extra credit. I love my rooster!
