Hi Tweedy,

Photo of my crele cock, I have a cuckoo pullet, if I was to mate them is there a chance of getting a cuckoo male from the mating? I know crossing the pullet with a red/black should produce nice crele males, but would like to get more cuckoo's.

He looks a nice boy. Colouring looks spot on :thumbright: As for crossing with a cuckoo pullet they are in the same colour group so i would imagine you will get a mix of both, may take a while to get it right .

Thanks Tweedy, not got any blacks as I assume they would be easier to get the cuckoo barring , at the moment he running with a wheaten and crele hen, the cuckoo pullet is this years (may) hatch so think she bit young yet.

The neglected two are doing well, act like a proper old couple, he alot better on his legs and runs for his wheat, not getting rid of much of his weight though as he not that active although he does run for his wheat :? The little furnace hen laid 11 eggs so think they happy now :grin:

I bought Dr Battys new book breeding oeg type and colours, very informative and has helped me alot, still confused with the colours though! Still have four books now so maybe one day the penny might drop :-k

Colours in oeg can be very confusing but gives you plenty of options to work with. My blacks have just come back into lay.

They are amazing how many eggs they lay! I have little partridge pullet just started laying in Sept she laid 30 eggs so far.
Do you sell your hatching eggs?
Think mating black cockeral to cuckoo hen would get me purer barring than crele as I would asume there would be a gold cast in the hackles with the crele mating and would save on several generations to breed true, although we never know what nature will hand out...

If you breed in the spring please let me know as I would be very interested. Went to see some blacks but not very good taking your Arthur as a standard and he a handsome lad!
