    This was actually a replacement bird that I think they replaced incorrectly as far as breed and gender. I'm thinking this is a cockerel but would like some opinions and thoughts on breed. This picture is at 7 weeks old. Excuse the photo bomb of the white rock. Lol

    That is most definitely a cockerel. What breed was it supposed to be?

    Honestly I'm not sure. I had ordered several breeds that were black and I think it was supposed to be a jersey giant but that doesn't look like a jersey giant to me.

    Hmmm. I have a couple of Jersey Giant pullet chicks but they have some bits of white markings on the face. They are still only 4 weeks old though and I assume those go away so maybe yours has lost them.

    It's possible. The other breed choices could be Australop, BB Cubalaya, White faced black Spanish and the jersey giant.
