What breed is he?
Check the feet...
Yellow underfoot = Jersey Giant
White Underfoot = Black Australorp
Let us know after you check! Both are great breeds!
It's okay, it happens to the best of the newbies!
So how did it turn out? Did you look at his feet? Australorps are white to pinkish underneath, Jersey's are definitely yellow.
So it was a local person that you got it from? I wonder why they said it was a Jersey Giant when its an Australorp? I wonder if they have a mixed flock or they don't know the difference?
