    hello, i've raised and studied chickens for years now. Lately i've been thinking about a certain crossbreed that i like to call "cornish giant" it would be a crossbreed of cornish and jersey giant. i've never seen one or heard about one, but i've been wondering if theres one out there that you might know of, because it sounds like it would be a big bad chicken.

    So do you know of one of these "cornish giants"?

    It would be an extremely slow-growing bird. Not to sure what the point of one would be .

    it would be a more dangerous rooster though. with the razor sharp talons being giant, from the Cornish side of it.

    So are you breeding it to cockfight? What is the purpose of you breeding it? And [​IMG].

    thanks, no way though, im just curious, i've always been interested in roosters. I've always wanted more people to see that their not cowards, so i've been searching for the most "masculine" one so i could show it to my friends and other people i know, and maybe they will change their minds about what they think of them.

    Then get a Malay, Sumatra, Leghorn (I hate them), or a Plymouth Rock. THose are not wimpy roosters. Some wimpy roosters are: Japanese bantam (I like the roosters but they are wimpy), any bantam (but Japanese in particular). To prove your point even more tell your friends to walk into your pen with the Leghorn and then distract them by talking to them... nuff said [​IMG].

    i got a leghorn, so that would work, and aren't bantam roosters aggressive?

    Not all of them. The bantam Leghorns would be aggressive but I think from what I have heard (not personal experience) that Sebrights are one of the most agressive bantams.
