Description:You may never have even heard of the Golden Cuckoo variety of

The beautiful feathers of the Golden Cuckoo are
crossed throughout with irregular dark and light golden colored
bars, similar in
some ways to Crele coloration. We anticipate that these will be
hard to keep in stock, so order early to get in line!
Egg color with this variety is dark, but not quite as "chocolaty" as the Black Coppers. Colored eggs are always a more vibrant early every laying season, and slowly
fade as the season progresses.
