    I cannot decide what this roo is. It was my bonus rare chick when I ordered from McMurrys. He is huge..has a nice personality. He has willow legs and dark eyes. I have not been able to find one like this in their catalog under rare breeds. Wondering if he is just a regular White Leghorn maybe?? He is one of 2 roos I am keeping hoping his size will be passed on to future meaties!! Isn't he a handsome boy?? Any help appreciated!

    Also...is this Golden Polish a male or female...really hard for me to know as this is my first one. It is suppose to be a female (5.5 mo. old) but from the pics at McMurrays I am not sure.

    The white one looks like a White Jersey Giant. The polish looks like a pullet to me, but not 100% positive.

    The Polish is most definitely a pullet.

    The White one is a Jersey Giant. (leg color)

    I'm going Giant, but it looks a lot like a White Rock too. The leg color is wrong and they don't get as large though.

    Id say Jersey Giant cause a White Rock has yellow legs.
