Cuckoo whit its strong markings is a very striking colour in any setting,very cheery birds they deserve to be more popula,hopefully whit the standards beung re-submitted for 2012,they will gain a few more devotees. I have started work on lavender,blue&lemon cuckoo and hope they look as good as the black.time will tell.At the end of 2011 I showed the cuckoo hen in the PCGB National show and archieved a 2nd place,Feb 2012 one of my hen got 1st AOC at the Reading&District Bantam Show
