    I saw some pictures of a GCM and fell in love. If anyone has hatching eggs for sale I would be interested.

    Thank you.

    I probably wont be much help, but may help you find a few leads on some future Golden Cuckoo's. Quite a few BYC'ers are serious about improving the color/type of the Golden Cuckoo's, and several members have them or know about the Golden Cuckoo Marans Genetics as well. It may be helpful to ask any of them?

    I have had Golden Cuckoo eggs from Nivtup - Don is one of the folks working on improving lines, and Pasofinofarm at http://www.nonesuchfarm.net/poultry.html (contact her for egg availability and prices). I had a poor hatch due to my incubator issues, all of Don's (Nivtup) eggs were fertile, just beautiful!

    Also some BYC people with alot of information and birds are Birch Run Farm and krys109uk. I read in a post that Walkswithdog is getting eggs from someone this month too!

    Gabbard farms (Julie Gabbard) sells a variety of Marans eggs, including Golden Cuckoo:
    GOLDEN CUCKOO MARANS (available to ship within 30+ days)
    $59.95 per dozen (6 eggs $31.95) (3 eggs $17.95) (1 egg $6.95)


    Good Luck! Golden Cuckoos are sooo pretty, arent they??
