What a handsome fellow! Will the cucoo coloration appear in the first generation?

If I understand it right yes,if he breeds solid colored hens I will get a few cuckoo`s,not good at understanding genetics.The cuckoo is still a work in progress,the comb is way to bright and the skin is not black as it should be in silkies,but I don`t care I think they are nice to look at.

Using the "Chicken Calculator" your cross should produce about half black barred and half blue barred chicks.

They should all be quite attractive!
