    We're thinking roo. He(?) has always been skittish. His comb and wattles just started coming in and they are larger than our other chicks and much darker. He has a different body shape too. I'd take a pic of his hackle and saddle feathers for you but they haven't come in much yet. He's really strangely feathered but it sounds like that's just a cochin for you.

    We're not sure. The lady I got it from thinks maybe a Jersey Giant. But she isn't sure. "He's" 6 weeks old. I'll post a full body pic soon. Gotta get it off my phone.
    He's going to have to find a new home as we aren't allowed roosters. It makes our job of picking chicks to keep easier though. We have 12 and can only keep 8.

    Yeah, I think he could be a Jersey/Cochin cross. Can't wait to see how big he'll get. He's sure to be massive! :)
