    These adorable babies are Cuckoos. 7 little darlings hatched yesterday. Some are feather legged, some are clean. I think I have a good mix of cockerals and pullets. Anyone want to take a guess? Thanks for looking.

    I see mostly pullets in the pics.

    Quote:That is what I am thinking. That is why I said a good mix.[​IMG] I think I might have 2 cockerals and 5 pullets. One cockeral has feathered legs and several pullets do as well.

    These are my first Cuckoo chicks. I see 2 with obvious combs and 5 with no raised combs. I can see one that sort of looks lighter, but not obvious lighter as with some pictures I have seen.
