    Quote:Thank you! I am breeding him to three Black Jersey Giants, 1 RIR mix and two Golden Comets! I love him that much. I hope all his son's are half as handsome as he is. Can't wait to see the Jersey Giany Roosters! I have 25 eggs in the incubator right now. Hatching on the 28th! Wish me LUCK!

    I'm thinking a Production Red.... or a poor RIR example

    Here is a good example of a New Hampshire... I don't think your roo looks like him.

    He's a production red. Color isn't too dark at all - in fact, quite common. Especially the dark shoulder...

    His color isn't correct for a NH. See how their hackles are almost gold on the ends, with BIG contrast to the dark shoulder? His aren't - they are a uniform red.

    Well I'm no expert at all, that being said your roo looks a lot like my RIR. The only big difference I can see is that your roo doesn't have as much tail as mine. So there ya go, my ten cents for what its worth. LOL.
