Cuckoo Bluebar

A Cuckoo Bluebar hen walks in a green pasture.

A cross designed to deliver lots of beautiful, large, blue-green eggs, Cuckoo Bluebars have unique blue barring, as opposed to black barring which is more common. Both heat and cold-hardy, these interesting-looking birds are smart, alert for predators, and friendly, too! Most will have cool little crests behind their single combs as well, making them even more fun-looking!
