Our Large Fowl Chocolate Cuckoo Orpington's are a great eye-catching bird to add to anyone's collection.  The Cuckoo stripes contrast against the solid chocolate body of the bird to make an absolutely beautiful color.    We have 2 different bloodlines in our Chocolate Cuckoos to ensure genetic diversity.  This coloration is very rare in the United States and we are happy to bring this color to the public! This color breeds true.  Chocolate Cuckoo bred to a Chocolate Cuckoo produces all Chocolate Cuckoo offspring. 

 

Chocolate Cuckoo's are even more of an interesting color because they can also be bred to Chocolate Orpingtons.  This creates new bloodlines as well as helping to add type and color to your birds.   Below is a chart to help out with the genetics if you should choose to breed chocolate cuckoo's to chocolates.
