    [FONT=arial, sans-serif]I just got a Rooster and a Hen (Possibly a Rooster, not sure) I think on is a Cochin and I was told the other is a Jersey Giant. He/she has Orange feathers and I haven't found a Jersey Giant online that has orange feathers. Here are some pictures.[/FONT]

    The Jersey giant and cochin are roosters. Your jersey giant could also be an australorp and probably a cross because there are orange streaks on the feathers, or it could be a black star but not likely.

    Thanks, we were hoping they were both roosters.

    Those are both roosters.
    I think you're thinking of black star, the black sex link. But it's not either, black sex link roosters are barred and red sex link roosters are mostly white with red patches.
