    So I know this is a Roo but I'm wondering what kind.

    I bought him in a strait run assorted bin. He came from Ideal. Do you think he is a Black Astrolorp or Jersey Giant. He is quite a bit bigger than my other chicks at this same age. He is 5 weeks. He's even bigger than my Production Red and EE roos that are the same age!

    He has black legs and the underside of his feet are more of a yellow color than white, but they are not a bright yellow either, just kind of in between. He is starting to get a green sheen to some of the wing feather etc but as you can see he has not feathered in on his neck or head yet. I am only inlcuding the picture of his head. He is totally black except for the white around his head.


    Sorry the picture is such poor quality, using my phone today!
