    [​IMG]I was told my Roo is a Black Jersey Giant. But he looks like an Australorp to me? He is about 7 months old. Any guesses?

    He's 7 months old. He's bigger than my hens but not as big as a Giant

    Check the color of the bottom of his feet. Yellow= jersey giant. white/ pinkish= australorp.

    What color are the bottoms of his feet? An Australorp has whitish feet pads, while a Jersey Giant has yellow bottoms. Otherwise, the two breeds look very similar.
